Snowflakes - Christmas at Sweet Stampin'

Thanks for stopping by. Summer is winding down and there's a crisp feel to the evening air.  I've noticed the leaves on the trees are starting to turn so in a couple weeks, we'll probably get a big wind and they'll all fall. We have a new challenge over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and this month the theme is Snowflakes.  Now you might think this is a simple card and by all accounts it should be but I swear I used about 8 sheets of paper trying to either get the stamp straight or not overlap the cuts on the dies.  Arrrggg!  Easy is never easy but I am happy with the way it 'finally' turned out!
Our sponsor is Stamp Art and the lovely Kahtryn is generously donating 5 of her cute digis to the challenge winner.

Supplies:
Dies -  Memory Box Bianca Snowflake, the little bursts are the flower centers from the Memory Box Cherry Blossoms

A beautiful card- and I am with you- I think CAS is so hard- although you are such an expert at coloring you can pull it off so well! Loving the shimmery snowflake and a wonderful sentiment too!
