Winter Post Happy Christmas - Unscripted Sketches #177

Last night there was a risk of frost, so today I spent most of my time in the garden trimming back my geraniums and repotting them.  I overwinter them indoors.  Some of my plants are over 10 years old.  And what a beautiful day to be working outside - sunny, but cool.
This card is for the sketch challenge with Unscripted Sketches #177 here


This is a 5 by 5" square card with a Cherry cobbler base layered with Very Vanilla.  The designer paper is Be of Good Cheer and that set the tone for the rest of the card.
I put a strip of silver glitter paper on the left hand side instead of ribbon.  I was visualizing all sorts of glitter for this card.
Image: The skaters were stamped using Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock - and punched out using a 2 1/2" circle punch.  The edges were sponged and then silver glitter as added around the circle.  
Embellishment: The snowflake from the Winter Post stamp set was embossed twice with silver embossing powder.  With one, the outline of the entire snowflake was cut out, and with the second only the middle portion.  It was attached to the first snowflake using a dimensional.  A rhinestone in the middle completed the embellishment.  Dimensionals were used to attach this embellishment to the card.

Stamps: Winter Post, More Merry Messages
Inks: Soft Suede, Versa Mark
Papers: Cherry cobbler, Very Vanilla, Silver Glitter, Whisper White, Be of Good Cheer designer paper
Accessories: 2 1/2" circle punch, silver chunky glitter, silver embossing powder, rhinestone, dimensionals
