Blessings and wisdom

Posting for the Lavinia challenge (Christmas), the Craft Barn weekly challenge (Snowflakes) and the SimonSaysStamp Wednesday challenge (Anything goes) with a winter-themed card. This would be great on the front of a Christmas card opening to a Merry and Bright greeting, but I'm using it as it is.

I used sprays for the background, stamped the lovely text stamp with a metallic blue.

I heat embossed the flower pods in white, filled them with Crackle Glaze (love how the embosssing makes it easy to fill the space!) and decided I wanted some snowflakes. Since I don't have a flake stamp, I took out the mini flowers. Used the stamp for the first time, and found (to my dismay) that the black colour on the flowers surface came of. I was stamping with a Pitt Brush pen, and the first impression was grey. I stamped onto an underpaper several times, cleaning and rubbing the stamp untill no more colour came off... Here I've stamped white over the grey impression, ended up adding white Sharpie and Diamond Stickles to cover it. A bit off trouble... why do these small stamps have to be coloured?

Anyway, the result fits fine to the fact that we had winter here for a few days :)
