Snowflake Ribbon with Brusho Background

Here's a card using some wonderful products that I won.

The die cut is the 
Snowflake Ribbon by Poppystamps

The sentiment is from

The background piece was done on watercolor paper with Brushos.
I used Kylies tutorial for this.

It made me think of the movie Frozen for some reason.

So it was an obvious choice for a snowflake card.

I cut the snowflake from white Glimmer Paper.  It has a lovely sparkle.

This is SO pretty Bonnie, and it does remind me of Frozen! :0) I love your background with the Brusho's...I would love to try them sometime but the price has scared me away. And the snowflake die cut with the glitter paper just really pops against that background...lovely, lovely card!! :0)

Such a pretty card Bonnie. I love the background you've done. My brusho stuff never turns out so pretty. What a lovely snowflake die. I've not seen it before. I imaging you'll be giving that lots of use before Christmas, I certainly would. The Hero Arts sentiment is a really lovely stamp. Barbxx

That die is to die for, Bonnie. The glitter is perfect over the Brusho background. It's been cool here, too, but should warm up for when my brother and sister-in-law arrive from New Bern tomorrow.
