Less is More and CFC 31

The challenge at Less is More is to make a one-layer card with the theme 'Let it Snow.'  I combined it with the CAS-ual Fridays challenge, 'In the Mist,' thinking that snowflakes and misting would go well together. 

I created a very subtle misted background using water with just a drop of two of acrylic paint added to it.  On the blue card I added clear rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes.  On the purple card I added some ultra-fine transparent glitter.







Neither the misting or the sparkle show up well in the photograph, as it was quite dreary here when taking these pictures.

Thanks for taking the time to visit during this busy time of year.  I've been behind in my commenting this week and hope to catch up in the next day or two.

Supplies:
Stamps: Martha Stewart, Hero Arts sentiment
Ink: Versamagic, Memento
Paper: PTI white
Other: transparent glitter, rhinestones, acrylic paint

I can just see the misting Ann and I should think they look even better in real life! I think we're all struggling to keep up with commenting at this time of year!
