Warm Winter Birthday Wishes

Today I have another winter birthday card to share.  The Seize the Birthday challenge included an added element - winter, hence the snowflake.

I chose Smoky Slate textured card stock for the base.  The image is from the Festive Flurry stamp set and is heat embossed on Pool Party card stock with VersaMark and a combination of Smoky Slate embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds.  The sentiment from the retired Snowflakes stamp set was heat embossed in the same way.  I added this and a piece of Winter Frost designer paper to Island Indigo card stock.  A piece of Silver Ribbon was added over the seam and attached on the back.  This layer was then added to the card front.  The finishing touches were a Rhinestone and a Frosted Finishes Embellishment (these are so pretty on winter cards).  That's all there is to it; quick and easy.  All I have to do is add a birthday greeting inside and this will be going out to a friend for her birthday next week.  Thank you for coming by.  I hope it's warmer where you are than it is here!!
