I thought long and hard about using Christmas ornaments - just like in the graphic. But I had a new set on my desk that was calling my name so I decided to make it work. I'm not sure if a rainbow of snowflakes makes much sense - but it is definitely "merry"!
I love these snowflakes. I needed another snowflake set like a hole in the head, but I love their open, knotted, almost Celtic look - so they definitely found a home in my collection. I used basic Stampin' Up colors to create the rainbow - even the long-retired Marvelous Magenta. I actually have every color they have ever come out with - along with reinkers and cardstock. I'm obsessive like that! But clearly it's necessary because Marvelous Magenta was absolutely required for that last snowflake.
I hope to see you playing along with Merry Monday. You'll definitely see me in the gallery each week from now until Christmas because I can't afford to miss a week with at least 2 or 3 Christmas cards coming out of my craft desk. I love the variety of challenges at Merry Monday - they will keep me motivated!
The bottom purple snowflake is Stampin' Up Marvelous Magenta. The snowflake centers are Stampin' Up rhinestones colored with Copics.
