Winter's Butterfly

Hello! Today I have a pretty CAS card for you. The only stamping is the sentiment which is heat embossed. I inked up my CB folder with some Pink Pirouette ink before embossing, that made the snowflakes really pop! I added a big snowflake diecut and popped it up. I finished it off with lots of pretty pink pearls! Pretty quick and easy. My photo doesn't do the card justice, much prettier in person! Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it and enjoy reading all of your comments.

I don't think my comment went through so I'll try again. It's amazing how much contrast is derived from even a subtle color when using embossed designs. This card is beautiful!
