A couple of people have asked what kind of colored pencils I use, and my answer is--ANY kind! LOL! I have Prismacolors, Faber Castell Polychromos, Lyra, Koh-i-noor, Design Spectracolor (discontinued). I'm not particularly loyal to one brand, which pencil I use depends solely on which color I need or which paper I'm using. For example, if I'm coloring a digi stamp which is printed on smooth paper (then sealed with a workable fixative) Koh-i-noor works best. It lays down easily where the other pencils tend to be very light. So, I hope this helps some of you!
I decided to create a pretty snowflake stick pin for this card. I die cut some flower shapes out of wool felt, punched a snowflake out of shimmery cardstock, added a Swarovski crystal bead and threaded it all onto a bent silver stick pin. I get these pins from Fire Mountain Gems, but I've heard that you can find them in craft stores, too. It's an easy way to add a little 'gift' to a card that the recipient can remove and wear.
Hope it inspires, thanks for stopping by!
