Icy Christmas

Welcome back to another What if Wednesday? Challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a gorgeous color combo for you:
Blue is my favorite color, so this was an easy one for me.  And here is my card:
 I started out by stamping RI's "Snowflake (lg)" in versamark and embossing it with clear embossing powdered.  Then I decided to break out my brayer and bray an ombre ink background.  Well, I definitely need some more work on it, because I ended up having to use my ink dauber to fill in some of the places that weren't covered by the brayer.  But overall, I LOVE the look that came out of it.  Then I spritzed it with some glimmer mist for a stunning glitter all over.  Unfortunately, it doesn't show very well in the photos.
My ribbon came from some packaging or other; it was just crying to be recycled.  Can't wait to see what you come up with with this beautiful color combo.
