Bright Dazzling Snowflake

The color challenge on SCS this week is to use Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze & Crumb Cake.  Dessert is pearls.

I had this dazzling snowflake (the picture doesn't do it justice!) from playing around with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets in the Holiday Mini.  Hint! This doesn't work well with Sizzlits!  Some of the snowflakes wouldn't punch through completely.  This one did and I sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on the sticky side.  To do this again, I will die cut the snowflake and use glue before adding the Dazzle.

I stamped a  few snowflakes on the Crumb Cake with Whisper White, stamped the sentiment and added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds around.  I punched the ends of the sentiment piece with the Scallop Trim Corner Punch and mounted that on a scrap piece of leftover Baja DSP from a Christmas pack a couple of years ago.  In keeping with the lacy effect of the snowflakes, I punched the edges of the remaining border pieces added a pearl to the center of the big snowflake and ta da, another Christmas card done!
