Embellish Snowflake Color Combo

To kick off the winter season and to end the year with a bang, Ashley over at Embellish has selected a tasty new color combo for the latest (and last of the year) Snowflake Color Challenge... What a wonderful, unexpected and colorful winter color combo wouldn't you say?! Here is my creation for the challenge...
The strip at the top of the card was stamped with Houndtooth, in aqua onto white cardstock, and wrapped with a yellow bow. The sentiment, (from Winter Swirls) was stamped in dark chocolate and embellished with a row of rhinestones.
My inspiration for the snowflakes came from the Papertrey Ink home page here. Did you see the falling hearts on the right side of the page? What a perfect idea for falling snow! To create, all I did was lightly draw the lines in pencil, pierce the holes, erase the pencil line and then attach the rhinestone embellished snowflakes with foam adhesive.

Thanks for popping in today, hope you enjoyed your visit!
