Wednesday means it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges! I think this week's challenge can be as easy or as difficult as you choose to make it -- we are asking you to incorporate snowflakes into your project. Here's what I mean, for me at least: when the Christmas season is over, I put essentially all my wintry-themed stamps away. So I could take the easy way out today, and make my first Christmas card of 2013, but that seemed a bit too easy. So I made sure that although my card is wintry, it's non-holiday-specific. 

I started with some torn post-it notes to make a softly defined rectangle mask before I embossed my snowflakes with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged the area with ink before removing the masks. A simple white-embossed sentiment, a die-cut snowflake and a bit of bling finished the card. (I'm obviously in an extra-clean-and-simple mood today.) And while I could use this anytime in the next couple of months, I have a feeling this will end up in next December's stash. :D 
Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights; they offer digital images, papers, cut files and more. Come and join the flaky fun!

Supplies: white & blue cardstock, Local King Rubber Stamp snowflake background & Unity winter wishes stamps, Colorbox frost white & Ranger/Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress inks, clear & white embossing powders, Lil' Inkers snowflake die, Stampin' Up basic rhinestones, pop-dot tape

I love the way you did the rectangle! ANd I know exactly what you mean - you could use it, but you won't ;) I have LOADS like that in my stash that will be there until next Christmas! This is the first year I haven't put all the xmas stuff away - I'm hoping to keep up through the year.
