IODT Challenge 'Winter'

It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge! This time the challenge is to create a Winter card. Want to see your card featured on the Impression Obsession blog? Email your challenge cards using IO images to Shirley . Every week cards will be selected to showcase on the IO blog!!!
I've been dying to try a snowflake using the Spellbinders pendant die, and this seemed the perfect opportunity. I used cool, icy colors and shimmery chalks and cardstock for a cold winter feel. I used the large snowflake from Leigh Hannan's Snowflakes clear stamp set to stamp Versamark onto white cardstock. Then I brushed some shimmery chalks over it. Very pretty, subtle color, just like a snowflake should be. I die cut two of the pendant dies from pearl white cardstock, and layered them at right angles. A pretty sheer white bow finishes it off.
Now it's your turn to create a winter card using your IO stamps! Get all the details at the IO Blog.
