Fiddle Fuddle

Hello.  Welcome.  Gosh, the last day of February.  I've been working on a wintery christmassy card.  It seemed a good idea at the time.  I am not a big fan of fuss and fiddle and it took a lot longer than I thought it would.  Isn't that the way??  But I like it.  So that's OK.  I doubt I will make another one though.  But then again, I rarely do LOL.

I took a piece of Authentique patterned paper and die cut using Memory Box Tivoli Snowflake.   TIP!! position your die so you have single big pieces falling off the edge of the card.  This picture shows the die cut paper mounted on silver embossed paper before I pieced back in the edges. 

Here's it is with the edges pieced back in.  I used distress inks, Ocean Spray, Iced Spruce, Stormy Sky and Brilliance Starlite Silver on the die cut showflakes and then stuck them back on the panel. 

I've added some more backing layers.  I cut the snowflake again from white and pale blue glitter card and layered them together.  The sentiment is a Crafty Individuals  stamp.
