Snowflakes

And now it's August! At 52CCT the first week of the month  means a sketch challenge and here it is:

Here is my card:



A while ago, when I used to have time to watch craft channels on TV, I saw someone adding glitter and all sorts to embossing powder. Then when you heat it they all melt together. That's what I did here to these snowflakes but, because the area being embossed was small, it didn't quite give the effect I remembered. Anyway they look quite pretty and sparkly. I started with blue card and added blue glitter and pinkish embossing powder. 
I layered them onto some embossed vellum with some silver thread wound round. The vellum looked better before I glued it down, you could see more of the delicate pattern. I wish I just glued around the edges but you live and learn. 

We hope you have time to join in with us this week. 
Thanks for visiting, enjoy your day. x
