Tree in Silver

Hello out there.  My card today is based on the Merry Monday Challenge #79 and the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #108.  It's pretty obvious that one of the challenges was to use blue.

I first stamped the image from the Warmth and Wonder stamp set on Whisper White card stock using silver ink.  The round ornaments were then stamped over it using Island Indigo ink.  The corners were rounded and the image matted with Brushed Silver card stock that also had rounded corners.  A piece of Island Indigo card stock was run through the Big Shot with the Snow Burst embossing folder, matted with Brushed Silver card stock, and attached to a piece of
Winter Frost designer paper that I had stamped some silver snowflakes on.  The corners of all these pieces were also rounded.  To a piece of Whisper White card stock I added two pieces of Island Indigo ribbon and some Silver Elastic Cord over the ribbon.  This was attached to the card using Glue Dots on the ends.  I then attached the image layer over this using Dimensionals.  An Island Indigo Candy Dot was added to a Candy Dot Brad Base and inserted in the center of a snowflake cut from Brushed Silver card stock using the Northern Frost Die.  I rolled up a couple of Glue Dots to attach it to the card; this was so you wouldn't see it through the holes in the snowflake.  I was going to stamp some silver snowflakes on the image but since the designer paper is a big design I decided to keep the image clean.  I would love to hear what you think of today's card.  Thanks for dropping in and enjoy the weekend.

The designer paper and the embossed card are perfect backdrops for the gorgeous tree image. A wonderful take on our snowflake theme Patti. Thank you so much for joining us at Merry Monday.
