ABC Christmas Challenge - V is for...

We have a fun new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Lols is the host, and the theme is:

'V is for Vertical'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Drawn with Character:
Prize - 3 Images of the winner's choice!

I went for a vertical DL card...and some snowy stamps from the 'A Bright Tomorrow' set by Penny Black. Using Versamark Ink, I stamped the snowflakes on my card blank, then heat embossed them using clear powder. I stamped the same snowflakes on to a snippet of matching kraft card, this time embossing them using 'Sparkling Snow' powder from WOW, adding a sentiment from a set by Pollycraft for C. C. Designs. TO add some definition between the layers, I matted this panel on to a snippet of white card before adding it to my card.


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