One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #2 - Lot's of Snow

Happy Tuesday,
Welcome to the second challenge at One Layer Christmas Cards.  This challenge is Anything Goes with an optional twist to use Snowflakes. If you enter cards with the twist, you get an entry into the monthly random drawing for a prize. 1 card with the twist = 1 entry; players can enter as many times as they want.
I put a thin mask down each side of my card and then embossed the Snowflakes with White embossing powder and sponged Iced Spruce Distress Ink over my embossed images. The Greeting was embossed with Pewter embossing powder and I finished with some pearls in the centre of the snowflakes.

Stamps: S/U's Snowflake Soiree, Many Merry Stars, Papertrey Ink - Signature Christmas
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Iced Spruce
Finishing Touches: Pearls
Cool Tools: Masking Medium, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Embossing Buddy, White E/Powder, Pewter E/Powder, Heat Tool, Round Sponging Tool
Thanks for visiting today.
