Snowflakes in Neutral

Good Tuesday morning.  On my card today I used two challenges:  Pals Paper Arts Challenge #225 and Merry Monday Challenge #132 - snowflakes, dry embossing, use neutral colors.  This would also be a great card for a winter birthday.

Card Base:  Whisper White card stock.
Embossed Layer:  Whisper White card stock embossed using the Northern Flurry embossing folder.  Added VersaMark and Iridescent Ice and heat embossed it for some sparkle.  Matted with Basic Gray card stock.
Additional Layers:  Heat embossed a piece of Smoky Slate card stock the same as I did the embossed layer.  It was matted with Basic Gray
card stock and attached to the card.  Matted a piece of All is Calm designer paper with Basic Gray and added it to the card.  Cut some snowflakes from Whisper White using the retired Northern Frost Decorative Strip die.  Dimensionals were used to attach them to the card.
Finishing Touches:  Added some Dazzling Details to the three snowflakes as well as Rhinestones to the center.
Hopefully these are the only snowflakes that are around here for a while but you never know.  Enjoy a wonderful day.
