This week's Sweet Stamps Challenge is:

Winter Blues
The last week has been extremely cold here! We haven't gotten too much snow this year so far, which is kind of a bummer!  It is so much fun to go outside with the kids to play in the snow!  Hopefully soon we will get more!!

But with the cold weather I have been dreaming about my flowers!!

With our "Winter Blues" challenge in mind, I decided to get a head start on my Christmas cards and create this winter themed card:
I was inspired to use the "winter" Piccolo word and a Snowflake!  Both embossed with Bahama Aqua

I stamped a few snowflakes on the white cardstock and then embossed around the edge of the paper with Diamonds and Pearls EP!  One of my fav. SS EP's!!

LOVE how this card turned out!

One of those "HAPPY DANCE" moments! Supplies Used:
Crystal Snowflake 8033     Brrrr & Tiny Snowflake DUO 8032     Shades™ Dye Ink Pad AQUAMARINE     Shades™ Dye Ink Pad AEGEAN     Snowflake Ornaments set of 12 Piccolo Accents LA125     Enamel Embossing Powder FluidEnamel EP BAHAMA AQUA    Fine Detail EP DIAMONDS & PEARLS      1/4" Super Sticky Tape, 55 YARDS


Looking ahead, next week's challenge is:
#205 Hearts

Be sure to check out the Sweet Stamps Blog for more wonderful inspiration from the "Sweeties"!

Have a wonderful day!
