A very difficult to photo Snowflake Card!


I've had a nightmare trying to take a picture of this card and unfortunately this is as good as it gets! It's a very simple card but I've used a very shiny, purple holographic card which under indoor lighting is just reflecting all the light back, so neither picture is particularly accurate as it is actually purple on a satin white cardstock but looks all sorts of colours in the one photo & pink in the other! Oh well, hopefully you get the gist!

I've followed the sketch over at Annabelle Challenges, I really liked the straightforward layout, and they ask for added bling, which with the shiny card & gems, I think I've achieved!

I'm also entering it into two of this week's challenges at Design Dollies, the first is for a purple monotone card (it is purple honestly!) and the second is to have snowflake(s) as the main element of the card.

I've die cut the snowflakes, stamped out my sentiment & used my SU! Word Window punch for the sentiment & the two purple "tags" and added some ribbon from my stash.

Don't worry, between the two photos you get a very good idea of the card. It's stunning and that holographic card really suits the bold design.

Thanks for entering my candy draw.
