Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #185

Welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  I've been holding onto this snowflake negative left over from die cutting one of the CTMH Snowflakes a couple weeks ago for the Hop To Stop and it was perfect for this week's sketch!  

I embossed the base with a snowflake folder.  The second and third layers were cut using my CDD Fancy Frame Dies.  I embossed the third layer with more snowflakes and then I used some Purple Inka Gold on the edges of the two embossed layers and over the snowflakes.

I knew right away I wanted to use it to make a shaker... love it with the CDD Shimmer Sequins in it... 

I'm also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Shine Bright Like a Diamond Challenge... Sparkle and Bling are the buzz words for this one...  love those words!

The sentiment is from one of the CTMH Cartridge stamp sets..I was able to use that pretty purple embossing powder I got at my LSS to use during the Hop To Stop... I picked up that ribbon too... I have to admit.. I'm having a hard time setting aside the purple now that I have plenty of supplies...

And that pretty smaller snowflake is from Lawn Fawn and I cut it from white glitter paper from Doodlebug that I got from The Cutting Cafe Shop.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I can't wait to see what YOU create!  Please do play along... I'll visit you for sure!
