snowflake thanks

Do you love creating patterned papers?  I do!  For one thing, it's a good way to use a lot of the stamps in a set.  It always feels better to ink up stamps to use, not just collect :)  For inspiration, I used a simple card from Niki Estes (link here) just tweaked a bit.  I think she totally nailed the dove and Fillable Frames #8 combination.
I needed some thank you cards so I stamped a grouped block of sentiments from Inside & Out: Thank You.  I filled in gaps with snowflakes in various sizes and hues of blue.
Blueberry sky and enchanted evening look so rich and gorgeous to me, and they pair nicely with rustic white and smokey shadow edging.
This sentiment from Star Prints is one of my all time favorites.  The dove is glitter embossed so it's shiny and sparkly.
I love this pearlescent electric blue because it's so bright and shimmery in person.  Yay - that's four special cards to thank four special people!

xoxo,
Christy
