Serendipitous Snowflakes

Hello.  Welcome.  The Jingle Belles are looking for pink christmas in support of breast cancer and they are going to donate $2 for every card in the link up.  The linky closes soon but I decided to make a card and join the fun.

I stamped Hero Arts Splendid Snowflakes and embossed with white powder.  Then I spritzed my paper with water, applied Picked Raspberry distress ink to my acrylic block, smeared it across the wet paper and got this cool broken ombre effect.  I cut Sizzix Reindeer 2 from pink card and embossed it with the matching embossing folder.  It didn't show up very well against the background so I smeared the reindeer with Gingerbread versamagic chalk.  I added a bit of pink bazzill around his neck and then cut a pink ribbon from the same card.  I added a pink rhinestone to the ribbon and some pink pearls to highlight some of the embossed patterns.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
