Beaded Snowflake Season's Greetings - Unscripted Sketches # 220

Wow is it ever cooler today!  This morning was definitely sweater weather, so I shut off the AC and opened up the windows.  What a pleasant change!

Lately I've been going back to making cards the way I haven't done in a number of years - stitching and beading.  For this card with Unscripted Sketches challenge here I stitched and beaded a snowflake rather than stamping.

This is a 5 by 7" card so a bit larger than I usually make them.

Special Technique:  Using a pattern, I pricked holes in a piece of Black card stock, and stitched and beaded the image of the snowflake.  Silver polyester thread and two types of beads were used.

Stamp: More Merry Messages
Ink: Basic black
Papers: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Modern Medly DSP, Silver card stock
Accessories: Polyester thread, seed beads, rod beads, Decorative Label punch, Tasteful trim die, dimensionals.
