PPA72

Happy Saturday!

Did you see this gorgeous inspiration photo for this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge?


My card base is Brushed Gold card stock. I used the Northern Flurry embossing folder on the Very Vanilla layer and applied Champagne Shimmer Paint with a sponge dauber to the embossed snowflakes. The ornaments were punched from retired SU DSP (bridal?) and outlined with a gold marker. Look closely, there are pearls on the ornaments and the two large snowflakes:


The sentiment is from Four the Holidays and the bottom right snowflakes are from a stamp in the retired Christmas Punch set. Both of these are embossed in gold. The three corner snowflakes are punched out. Look closely again, there are more pearls:


There still time for you to get inspired and play along in this week's PPA challenge.
Happy crafting!
