Silvery Let it Snow

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a silvery snowy Christmas card using Memory Box stamps for the Simon Says STAMPtember Memory Box Collaboration Challenge. This is such a lovely stamp set....I don't know why I don't use it more often!

I also am participating in the current MFT Sketch Challenge:

This sketch was perfect for using a scrap of one of my layered embossed backgrounds that I make from my narrow leftover strips. It's difficult tell in the photo, but I heat embossed the sentiment in bright white to give it a little more emphasis against the black background and surrounding snowflakes.

Supplies used include:
Memory Box - Making Spirits Bright stamp set
WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular (for sentiment)
Ranger - Embossing Powder silver for snowflakes
Versamark ink
Simon Says Stamp - Falling Snow stencil
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Darice - Interlocking Circles embossing folder
DCWV scraps from stash for background
Core'dinations/Darice solid cardstock
Ribbon from stash

Hope you enjoyed my card. Thank you so much for stopping by today!!!

    Sorry it's taken me a while to comment - Dudley took a downward turn and has been quite poorly with what our vet says is gastroenteritis. We still feel it was the tick medication that caused it - toxins are a known cause of gastroenteritis. Thankfully he seem to be properly on the mend having had a jab to stop him being sick plus other meds to be taken daiy including anti-biotics and of course all our attention has been focused on him these past few days.
