Be Inspired #27

I loved Beate's inspiration piece this week. As soon as I saw it, I pulled out colors to work with--Pink Pirouette, Purely Pomegranate, and silver. The rest of the card came together quickly.

I started with a Pink Pirouette base. I used my new Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder on a Purely Pomegranate layer, then rubbed a silver inkpad across the embossing. I added some pink rhinestones to the snowflakes, then inked up a metal-edged tag with the snowflake and sentiment. I used two ribbons--one silver, the other pomegranate--then attached the tag, a jingle bell, and a snowflake charm with some silver cording.

Stamps: Let It Snow (Hero Arts)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Purely Pomegranate
Ink: silver (Stampabilities)
Accessories: Cuttlebug Snowflakes, silver ribbon (SU), pomegranate ribbon (The Ribbon Retreat), silver cording (Michael's), metal-edged tag (SU), jingle bell & charm (Hobby Lobby), rhinestones (The Paper Studio)
