Here's the Design Team:

I love snowflakes and today's featured set gives you a few different sizes and shapes to choose from along with matching sayings.  After stamping my own background by alternating the "let it snow" saying and one of the snowflakes in pacific pointe ink, I stamped the main image in memento bahama blue onto white card stock before layering and adding gold brads and popping up over a gold cord border.  I made the saying by stamping and punching it out before adhering using glue dots to finish it off.  This set of cards is also part of my July 2014 Christmas Card Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
