Snow Flurry

I have another 'one-layer' (ie 'cheap to post'!) Christmas card today. I followed the 'Off the Edge' theme of this week's Less is More Challenge, stamping a flurry of snowflakes with a Hero Arts cling stamp...funnily enough called 'Snowflakes' that I bought in the post-Christmas sales...across a kraft card blank in Versamark, then heat embossed them with opaque white powder. I added a Penny Black sentiment stamped in black...and that's it...another really simple card...I did toy with the idea of adding some pearls or gems...but in the end decided to keep it totally flat.
