Snowflake

Can you believe it is the 15th of September already?  Well, it is and that means it is time for our mid-month inspiration from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  As always, it is anything goes all month long!!  Doesn't get any easier than that.  Here is my card.
Quite quick and easy, actually.  Well, at least it was supposed to be, but even quick and easy seems to take me much longer than it should!  I die cut the snowflake from the blue paper (don't those white dots make you think of falling snow?  It does to me!) and also from white cardstock.  I placed the white snowflake inside the outline on the blue paper to use as a template for gluing the little blue pieces back into place.  That way  the snowflake is cut "into" the blue panel instead of being on top of it.  In real life it gives a bit of a fun look.  Then I stamped the sentiment on another white panel and scored lines on either side of it (it's hard to see in the photo, but if you look closely, you'll see it.)  Then adhered the blue sequins and it's all set to go.
  If you haven't started yet, it is definitely time to start on those Christmas cards!  I don't even want to mention how quickly it is coming!!
