Old Olive snowflakes?

The Limited Supply was a LIMITED SUPPLY challenge this week. Here was the list we were given:

1. The only image stamps/embossing you may use are snowflakes. Yup! Only snowflakes (or something that looks like falling snow). No snowmen, snowwomen or anything, just snowflakes! The same goes for patterned paper . . . it must be snowflakes!! (Get the idea?)
2. Your creation must be monochromatic.
3. You need to add some sort of “bling” or sparkle to your card. Stickles, rhinestones, shimmery paper or ribbon . . . make it sparkly!!
4. Last, but certainly not least . . . sentiments may be ONE WORD only!


I pulled out Rubbernecker Snowflakes and JustRite Harmony Classic Oval stamper. I wanted a different color for my card so I went with Kiwi Kiss! I embossed the snowflakes with Iredsecent Ice after stamping them in Olive Craft Ink. I sponged on Old Olive on all the vanilla pieces. I wanted the flowers on the JustRite stamp to be more like snowflakes so I filled them in with a glitter gel pen. Added bling in the corners by Mark Richards.

I used Sketch 205 for my layout.

stamp: Rubbernecker snowflakes, JustRite Harmony Classic Oval stamper; paper: kiwi kiss, vanilla; ink: craft old olive, classic old olive; accs: mark richard's cyrstal stickers, kiwi kiss ribbon, coluzzle, glitter gel pen, iredescent ice embossing powder

OMG. I never could have pulled off this challenge, I don't even think I would have been brave enough to try! You, however, are in a totally different class than me! This is astonishing. Your ribbon is tied perfectly, and you did an amazing job shading with the green. The one word DREAM looks really great. I could go on, but enough for now. This is just wonderful.

Love the bow! I think that you need a tutorial on tie-ing bows like that! Love the card, too:)
