Stampin Up, Paper Players sketch challenge 272

I LOVE this silver snowflake vellum!!!  And when I love something, I don't use it. Yup, bet more of you are like that. I decided it needed to be used.  Someone on my Christmas card list will be getting this.

Silver is really hard to take photos of, it comes off dark, but it's not.  The tree is silver embossed and just gorgeous.

I used Soft Sky for my base card,  and I wanted to keep as much of the vellum showing as I could and still be true to the sketch, so the sentiment needed to be a die. I love all the dies for words and sayings!  So much of what we have today was not even dreamed of way back when we started stamping.  Yup, I was there when it all started. 

We had a stamp board on the old Prodigy Service, no internet yet, and we would all meet and either go to stamp stores or hit up the Printer supply house for great cardstock and stuff.   Raise your hand if you were there too! It was an exciting and fun time.

 Here is the sketch:

I hope you enjoyed my card and it gives you some inspiration.  Have you started your Christmas cards yet?

I love this vellum too - hard to cut in to, but so worth it when you produce a card like this Lynn! So much beautiful sparkle from the silver elements and I love how you incorporated the pale blue too. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
