Home For Christmas...

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! I was SO super excited to get home from work today and find my SU! Mini order had arrived!! YEAH! So, of course, I had to play!!

This card is for today's Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS, WT185, which was to use a charm on your card. I have tons of charms, but I really wanted to try the Faux Metal Technique, and it was SOOOOO easy thanks to Beate's Tutorial over on the Resources Page on SCS! I used the small snowflake from Snow Burst to create my gold snowflake charm! Fun!

I used the new Home For Christmas mini catalog set (which I LOVE) and colored it with my Aquapainter and SU! Inks. All the snow is Dazzling Diamonds. I finished this off with some piercing and the yummy new Alpine Ribbon Originals. I also snuck in a little felt flurry behind the knot in the ribbon!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!!
