Inkspirations Challenge #99 - Sparkling Snowflake

Hi all, how are your festive preparations coming along?  Christmas will be here before we know it!  :)

This week Keesh & the Inkspirations Team have another great sketch for you to try out:-


Here is what I have done with it:-


I love the combination of pale blue & white for Christmas cards - it's so serene.  Here I've teamed some texture different textures with the embossing, vellum & dazzling diamond encrusted die-cut.  I've added some interest to the sentiment panel by matting & raising it on dimensionals.

If you would like to play along in the Challenge with us, or see what the rest of the Team have created with this great sketch, here are the links:-
