Thank You Card ~ Shades of Blue {2nd Post}

When I was making my 1st card
I made this framed up snow scene too big
to fit the way I wanted it to on the hourglass cut
so what's a girl to do? Make another card of course.
This time I added an embossed background,
a ribbon/bow and some snowflakes with tiny buttons inside.
The vellum snowflake on the sentiment
is being held on by a mini paper clip.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Card front embossed using the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl folder.
*Snow scene from the Snow Scenes stamp set from Flourishes.
*Sentiment from the With Gratitude stamp set from Flourishes.
*Metal Mini Paper Clips from Jim Holtz.
*Buttons from my stash.
*Vellum from my stash.
*Stazon Jet Black stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
