Acetate and snowflakes

This weeks challenge over at Bah Humbug is using acetate and over at Susie & Vikki's it is snowflakes.

So, to get two for the price of one I have combined both in this card. I started with an A5 card blank and printed out some snowflake paper from my Artylicious "Season's Greetings" CD and then printed out the Snowflake wording design from my Peerless Designs "12 Days of Christmas" CD onto acetate. I placed the acetate on the top half of the card using brads. I then stamped the "Let it Snow" greeting (Creative Expressions stamp set) and embossed it with purple powder. This was matted onto a piece of the snowflake paper and purple mirri card and placed bottom left of the card. I then stamped the matching circle design and again embossed it with purple powder. I cut this out with my circle nesties and again this was matted onto snowflake paper and mirri card. I tied some ribbon around the card and placed the circle design using foam pads. Some purple pearl gems and Stickles added the finishing touches.

Thanks for looking.
