Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Silver & Snow/Snowflakes

Phew! It's finally the weekend! lol Which means it's Penny Black Saturday Challenge time...yippee! This month, we've gone all festive, and will be having a different Christmas theme each week...this week, we want to see your projects using:

'Silver & Snow/Snowflakes'

There are lots of lovely prizes up for grabs for our two fabulous sponsors:





and from The Ribbon Girl:


Ok...so onto my card...I've used another new stamp...I chose it as part of my prize from Handy Hippo that I won on Creative Inspirations...and is called 'Holly & Globe'. I heat embossed it in silver...I used to use this technique all the time when I first started stamping...and had forgotten how effective it can be...not to mention quick! For the background, I used my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder on plain white card...think this is my most used folder! I cut the snowflakes using Marianne Designs and Cuttlebug dies, adding silver pearls to their centres. The silver ribbon was a sales purchase at a garden centre after last Christmas...but this is the first time I've used it.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
