Whimsical Snowflake

A while back, before the "real" Christmas papers began hitting the stores, I was playing around with Basic Grey's Oliver 6x6 collection to make some holiday cards. The red and green pieces are all scraps left from other projects. A quirky Christmas color combo with that gray background, but I'm sure I can find a quirky recipient for this one {wink}.

The snowflake and sentiment are from JustRite's Whimsical Christmas 2" Round Borders & Centers. In addition to the Oliver designer papers, I added a strip of ricrac that I die cut from sheet music. The Turquoise Wave Vintage Crochet Trim is by Maya Road, the silver pearls are from Michael's, and the dry embossing is with the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder. The snowflake is colored with Copic markers and accented with Stardust Stickles.

Have a happy Friday!

What vision! Love that you used your scraps...mine pile up on the side of my desk and love that you used a non-traditional color scheme. It's refreshing!

I don't think the colors are quirky at all for Christmas. I think it's gorgeous!
