Snowflakes for Christmas


 Welcome! Today I am posting a Christmas card for a few challenges. I made this design following a Sketch from Sketch Saturday and was inspired to use wood grain pattern  and die cut words from the photo below.  I started with Pattern Papers from Fancy Pants Timbergrove pad using a snowflake pattern panel at the top of the card embossed with Darice EF Snowflakes.  I cut the words Merry Christmas using a Cheery Lynn Die from the wood grain panel before attaching to the white card base.  The popped up Snowflake is a layer of 2 snowflakes...one cut with Cameo and one with Cheery Lynn die. I topped it with a white sprinkle.
Can you believe no coloring or stamping on this card??

Challenges:
Sketch Saturday: #343 by Debra

and large sentiment on my card inspired by photo.
