Warm Winter Wishes holiday card

I made this card for the Frosted Designs card sketch challenge here.   The background was embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflakes folder, with one of the Easy Frames from Zoar Stamps.   The Easy Frames let you emboss your card front, leaving one area unembossed so you have a spot for stamping.   Very cool!   I bought mine from Stamp Your Art Out in Cincinnati but you can also get them at http://www.zoarstamps.com/.

The oval frame was cut with the Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge, and covered with rock candy Stickles for a little shine.   I stamped the snowflakes in the center oval with light blue ink, then stamped the sentiment over the top in black ink, and added a little glitter pen and a few crystals.

Wow! Your card is lovely! That is so cool that you can leave an area without embossing. I've never seen that before.
Thanks for joining the Tuesday Card Sketch Challenge at Frosted Designs! Please play along again next time.
