Copper Snowflakes

Well, there is nothing like waiting until the eleventh hour to get a card done for two challenges that close in a matter of hours!  It's rare that I wait so long but these days I'm not sure I can call my life my own.  I'm thinking it's the gear up for the holidays that come one right after the other at this time of year.  I love it but there is so much to do and I find there are not enough hours in the day.

For this card, I decided to use Pool Party throughout.  The cardstock, the ink and the ribbon.  Although, the ribbon actually started out Whisper White and I turned it into Pool Party ribbon using Pool Party ink and a blending tool.  It's my favorite way to make a ribbon to match my project.  My other favorite thing, at the moment is that gorgeous Copper Embossing Powder!


Stamp Sets:  Reason for the Season (sentiment), Snowflakes (Inkadinkado); Ink:  Pool Party; Cardstock:  Pool Party; Patterned Paper:  Home for Christmas (retired); Other:  Copper Embossing Powder, Whisper White 5/8" Organza Ribbon

The theme for my card is from The Paper Players.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
