There is a Chill in the Air

 
     Happy Friday, Flair friends.  Today I would like to share a card that just kind of happened.  I was playing with watercolors and the background was created.  Then I pulled out a very old shadow stamp and brushed it with some paint to get the soft block images.  I still thought the background was lacking, so I did a snowflake stamp with Versamark, to add a faint image.  I stamped a different snowflake in Versafine ink over the boxed, and gave them sparkle with a Stardust pen.  I then free handed the dots and dashes around the boxes.  All I had to do was add my sentiment, and a few lavender pearls.

     I would like to enter this over on the Unity blog for Friends with Flair, this week.  My card uses stamps from the September 2014 Unity KOM. 

     Here is to another fantastic fall weekend.  Enjoy!

I really like how you used those geometric stamps in your design. Those stamps of mine seem to never get used. You've inspired me to get them out.
