"Inspired by Judy her snowflake cards and ATCs she shared with
us earlier this week I made this card. The snowflakes are punched
out of the white Shimmer Sheetz using a Martha Stwart punch.
In the center you see the glitter Peel Off snowflake nr 7055.
A strip of the 65 mm Be Creative tape and the Silver
Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter as a background. To
finish it off a glitter border Peel Off nr 7010 in
silver and you have an elegant and very simple
Christmas card with a 3D effect. I do have one leftover
snowflake. This one will end up on a gift tag but
these snowflakes will look beautiful on your Christmas
dinner table as deorations on menu's etc."

Tonight, we are in St. Raphael at San Lucia port after a day's travel from Milan and a side-trip to Portofino.
Tomorrow, it's Cannes and whatever else along the path between here and there, and we plan to end the day in Saint-Tropez. Au revoir!
Tomorrow would be a great day to visit Art 'n Soul . . . Dianne would love to see you because the Impression Obsession order arrived today!
