Falling for You with "Brown" Snowflakes {Purple Onion Design Team}

Lately I have been trying "new" styles for me as a card maker and so I decided to play along with the CASology "brown" challenge this week. I was intrigued and went to work, creating a CAS snowflake card...with lots of brown? Antique? Old-Fashioned? Weird? Who knows, but I wanted to link up! I love the CASology challenge and I wish I could play along more often!

So here is my "brown" snowflake themed card! Yikes!


The main "snowflake stamped" panel measures 3 x 4". And then I added some burlap ribbon behind it. The "wood veneer" snowflakes come from my stash...but there are lots of great wood items at Paper Issues. I went to work and played along with a stamp set from Purple Onion Designs. It is called Vintage Snowflake Set by Paislee Press Designs.


I have a discount code for Paper Issues. Use the code Lesley13 to receive 20% off your order! Every bit helps! The challenge at Paper Issues is "Falling for You" and so I am using some "falling" snowflakes. I am also linking up to the current Ribbon Carousel-Holidays/Celebrations challenges.
