Yummy Aspen Frost

Happy Wednesday!

Before I show you my card today, I wanted to thank you all for your wonderful, kind feedback on my first tutorial. I really appreciated all the sweet comments! :)

I've been playing with the Aspen Frost, 6x6 paper pad and loving it! I created a couple of cards so far and I'm sharing one of them with you today. I don't think I've ever created a card with NO stamping before - gasp! :)

It's a very simple card using these pretty papers, two Martha Stewart, snowflake punches and some fun Thickers. I used the dots from the i's and j's for the centers of the snowflakes. I'll be entering this into the Moxie Fab World's, Alphabet Stickers Challenge

Thanks for stopping by today! It's gloomy and dreary outside - the kind of day when I'm thankful I get to work among beautiful flowers - heading there now. Enjoy the rest of your week! :)

Sometimes the paper is so beautiful, like this set, that it would be a shame to cover it in stamped images, well, that's my theory! I think i looks fab just like it is, those Thickers look awesome in that bright red!
