COF challenge for December

For our December challenge, we wish to "SNOW" you our winter inspired Crafter of Faith cards!

I used the embossing resist technique on my card. On white cardstock, I stamped the snowflake images (from Stampin' Up) with Versamark. I embossed with clear and white embossing powder. I sponged on baja breeze and pacific point ink around the snowflakes. I punched the snowflakes from white and pacific point paper and wrote the 2013 on them. For the glitter and bling, I added rhinestones and glittery ribbon.
