Peaceful Snowflakes

I shared with you that I like images that come in two sizes. These Serendipity snowflakes are another example of that. I used the larger snowflake as a background for the verse and also stamped it on shrink plastic to use as embellishments. The smaller stamp was used in the background.
I really like the shape of this Spellbinders die and like turning it in opposite directions, building it up (with pop dots, of course). This Serendipity snowflake could be used just as a background as it doesn't shout "snowflake", giving it more versatility. I think the calligraphy on the verse is so elegant. It just called for some satin ribbon and K & Company rhinestones.

What a pretty card! Even though I'm so far from being ready to see the fluff stuff, I think your card is wonderful. And you're right, those snowflakes don't scream "snowflake", so they could easily be used as just a lovely ornament. I turned a square nestie into a diamond yesterday. I like when I think like you, Artistic Genius!
