Let it snow

Merry Monday challenge for this week is neutral snowflakes with dry embossing which sounds so easy....but it was a challenging to come up with something that I was happy with.  I used glossy cardstock and put velum over it with embossing of snowflakes.  I then used some Cherry Lynn dies that are very delicate and placed pearl brads in the center.  I added a gorgeous sentiment from TLC over a sparkly/glitter cardstock.  Then I added a bow in a rich brown to tie it all together.
I was suprised this past morning on Halloween to wake up to find snow on the ground.  Luckily it didn't last, but it sure has been cold enough. Terrible for trick or treating to be 29 degrees out.

Snow already, it sounds like your having an early winter. I love your card what a great idea embossing the vellum it gives your card wonderful texture and the embossing really stands out especially with the added snowflakes on top. This is one very pretty card my friend you are showcasing your talent here with this brilliant idea. Take care and enjoy your weekend.
