This is my card for today's QFTD challenge. This week the honors went to Kathleen Lammie. I am very familiar with Kathleen's beautiful work and she is such an encourager with her kind comments.
She has a great and building gallery. I chose her seamless leaves card to case.
I love the triple stamping technique and I think Kathleen did a fab job with her card.
For mine I decided to go for a Christmas card. My larger snowflake image is from SU's "winter post" set and the smaller one is from SU's season of friendship set.
I stamped the snowflakes in night of navy ink. The smaller ones I stamped off first to make them a bit lighter.
My sentiment is from the SU "season of joy" set. Stamped in real red and then punched with SU's oval punches.
To finish my card I used some twine and added a pearl snowflake button.

What a great Christmas card, Mary! I love how I've been seeing some very different Christmas creations so far this year; very inspirational. Your colors look great on this triple stamped card, and I like the different sized snowflakes, especially the button on your twine! Wonderful take on Kathleen's card~
