Snowflake bauble

Hi everyone, I've been in the craft room for most of the day today!
When it cools down a bit more I need to venture out to bring our chrissy tree and ornaments out of storage.
 It's already late being put up but I'm earlier than I was last year!

I was inspired to make this card by this beauty over at Stamping with Loll.
I dont have any Inka Gold pastes (yet lol!) so I used blue and silver gelatos to smoosh my watercolour paper in. Loll's cards are so inspiring and she has some fabulous tutorials on the techniques she uses, I've been enabled many a time lol!

I'm linking up to the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday where the theme is let it snow.
Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

At Cuttlebug Mania the theme is embossing.
I've used a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and the Spellbinders ornament die cuts and embosses when you run it back through the Cuttlebug with a tan mat.

At Allsorts the theme is Clean & Simple.

I'm just cruising and saw this card entered in the CuttlebugMania challenge. This is just gorgeous and I love it. I think I'll try something similar to this since it is so elegant looking rather than 'cute'. Thanks for the inspiration! Hugs, Gail
