52CCT: Ombre Colors

Hi, all!  I've got a card today for 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown for our weekly challenge, which just happens to be a color challenge.  Since a few of the colors are shades of the same color, I went ombre!  I created my own "designer paper" by stamping the sentiment in different colors of ink fading up from darker to lighter...

Here's the card~


Details~


I've used a sentiment by Kaiser Kraft, a blue pearl by Want 2 Scrap, glitter paper by DCWV, a smaller snowflake punch by Martha Stewart, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  I hope you join our challenge and that you leave some love with the other amazing gals on this DT, too!  HUGS and merry stamping, all!

Another stunning creation. The stamp effect has worked so well and that is one gorgeous snowflake.
