The Daily Dare Challenge

It's the 11th Day of Christmas on The Daily Dare blog and Waltzingmouse Stamps is proud to be sponsoring today's challenge. The challenge is to create something with snowflakes...not so hard, and a lot of fun! Make sure you check out the details of the challenge - you could win a WMS stamp set of your choice!

I'm still making thank you cards for Christmas, so I put my challenge to work for me! I used one of my newer embossing folders from Sizzix. I love how well it embosses and the snowflake pattern is terrific! I created a snowy little scene with one of my favorite Waltzingmouse Stamps sets, Teeny Trees. I just love the teeny little birds included in the set. As you can see, I haven't gotten too far away from the holiday red color, but I just love it paired with kraft and cream. One more snowflake and a tag completes the card:

I hope you will join in on the challenge and take a chance at winning a WMS stamp set of your choice! If you need more inspiration, check out the WMS blog to see what the other design team members have created! Have a great day!

I really like this card. You can tell it's Christmas related with the way you used red, but the white, along with the snowflakes, shouts winter in all of its frosty glory. Fabulous.

Ok, after seeing your card with these embossed snowflakes, I had to hop over to ebay and buy them! I've been wanting a snowflake EF for some time! Beautiful card Jennifer as I love that WM stamp set soo much!
