Blue & Silver Snowflakes

I have a couple more Christmas cards to share today...using a piece of inky card that I'd intended to use for the background on another card, but I smudged the edge! I blended various blue Distress Inks (Broken China, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans & Chipped Sapphire) over a piece of white card, then spritzed it with a silver Cosmic Shimmer spray...it's really sparkly in real life, but I couldn't get it to show in the photographs. Then, I stamped a little snowflake (from the 'Jolly Friends' set by Penny Black) and embossed it in silver over the top. I cut the panel up, and used it to make two cards...edging the panels using a silver marker pen, adding a die cut snowflake (Memory Box 'Castle Snowflake') a silver pearl and Lili of the Valley sentiments:
