BBTB2/Snowflake

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013

We've arrived ...it's 2013.  Sometimes I reflect on those numbers representing the "now of it all" and I think back to 1959 when I was typing Mortgage Documents at the bank.  The 30 year maturity was 1989 and I could not wrap my mind around that time.  And look at us now.

Our very first 2013 challenge at BBTB2 is hosted by our lovely design team leader, Susan.  She has asked us to design with a snowflake.  There are quite a few snowflakes on cartridges but I selected the one from Christmas Cheer.  My card is 5x7, and I made the snowflake 4-1/2 inches in size.  Then I grabbed up my Martha Stewart Snowflake punches in 2 sizes and added a few more along with a jewel to bling it up. The snowflake has been embossed with the Snowflake embossing folder while the background mount is embossed with Swiss Dots (my preferred folder).  The sentiment is a clear stamp. 


Thanks for your visit... Please join in our Snowflake challenge.  Just follow our simple rules.  We love it when you share with us your creations.

Fabulous Carole and I cut that snowflake before and mine did not look this good! Has to be your artful layering and embossing. (Sorry I am so late getting by this week,) take care. ~Diane
