Are no two snowflakes alike?

Well certainly not when it comes to resist embossing!
I've used this big snowflake stamp from Inkadinkado, and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then inked over the middle with milled lavender distress ink and around the edges with broken china.

The paper is from Papermania and the ribbon hole punch is by fiskars. The ribbon is one I got from the USA and the greeting is from craftwork cards.

Thanks for visiting :)
