Purple Snowflakes Christmas Card

As part of the Smiley Team, I'm playing along with the Holiday Card challenges at Kards for Kids at Toronto's Sick Kids Hospital.  Still playing with my penguin set of stamps, I used the mini snowflakes to make a pattern.  (I threw in another snowflake from an HOTP stamp set too.)
I used three purple inks on this card and the purple paper is from DCWV (a stack I nabbed at Homesense for a great price).  It was quite enjoyable stamping the snowflakes wherever I felt like it.  There was no precision needed.  I didn't want to cover the sentiment, but I could have stamped right over it and have snowflakes overlapping.  They do that when they are falling anyway!

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!  If you would like to learn more about this technique, Gina K. Designs has a done great tutorial recently on background stamping with snowflakes.

One challenge down - at least 4 more to go!
