Salted Snowflake

Hi everyone.  Today's card is another for the CAS Watercolour August Challenge - Salt.  I love how the salt reacts with watercolours.


This time I die-cut a sparkly snowflake to pop on top of my blue Brushos and salt background.  I added a glittery jewel to the center.  A silver embossed sentiment finishes the card.

This card was simple to make.  I made a full panel of background (4 1/2" x 6"), then cut it into four equal pieces of 2 1/8" x 3" to create four cards.  Two are for my Christmas card stash and two I will donate.  A quick and easy way to get lots of cards made. :)

There's still a few days left to play along with the CAS Watercolour Salt Challenge. It closes at midnight August 24th.  Hope you'll join us.
