Snowflake-y Challenge

Well, it was my turn as LSC hostess this last Friday, so I thought I would share the cards I made as samples with all of you!! My darling daughter, Amelia, helped me out once again by making a sample card as well (the red snowflake card is hers!)

Smiley from millan.netHere were the official "rules" that I posted:

1. The only image stamps/embossing you may use are snowflakes. Yup! Only snowflakes (or something that looks like falling snow). No snowmen, snowwomen or anything, just snowflakes! The same goes for patterned paper . . . it must be snowflakes!! (Get the idea?)

2. Your creation must be monochromatic.

3. You need to add some sort of “bling” or sparkle to your card. Stickles, rhinestones, shimmery paper or ribbon . . . make it sparkly!!

4. Last, but certainly not least . . . sentiments may be ONE WORD only!

There were a LOT of fun ideas! Everyone is just sooo creative! Here is a link to the gallery if you want to see what my friends on SCS came up with:
