Snowflakes and more Snowflakes

Even though we don't get snow around these parts, I just love using snowflakes for winter themed projects.
 I just picked up this new Martha Stewart snowflake punch and of course needed to put it to use. That great background piece is cut with the Cricut.
 Notice the white pearl looking dots, I used Liquid Pearls.  This product seems to be my "go to" look for now! So easy to use and they make such a neat little accent.  This also fits Simon Says Stamps "Anything Goes" challenge using Martha Stewart products.
 I put the Colour Q color combination to use on my card.  It was fun to try to include all of the yummy colors in this combo.
 Next up, I wanted to use The Play Date Cafe combination and the CAS(E) this sketch sketch.  This time I pulled out a great image using the Cricut for the snowflake.  I stamped the zig zag design on the red cardstock with red ink. I didn't really want to use a plain piece of cardstock. 
 Notice that chunky glitter? I got it from Impress Rubber Stamps.
 Here is The Play Date Cafe combo. This is one I would want to use over and over.
And, the CAS(E) this sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
