Straying away from the norm...

Once in a while I just need to break away from my beloved Maggies and try something else. I found a couple of challenges, one at Lovely hAnglar Only requiring a image with snowflakes and one at Wild Orchid Crafts wanting Blue Christmas. So here is my entry to both of these challenges...

I regret to say that I have only one snowflake punch to my name! I have used it over and over again. So I built the snowflakes for this card by using different colors of cardstock and by painting them entirely with Icicle Stickles.

Here is the card I made...

A view of the card from each side...

I finished the inside off with a pocket at the top, using my newly acquired Magnolia Vintage Tag punch and the Tilda Lace edge dies...

Here is a closer view of the pocket and tag...

And finally, here is a closer view of this sweet hAnglar image - I have no name for my image...

I colored this image with Prisma Colored Pencils, used a little Glimmer mist on her and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit. Your comments are always appreciated!

Blessings and hugs,
