Color Throwdown 16

Wow, this week's challenge was really a challenge for me: Ballet Blue, Green Galore, Creamy Caramel & Chocolate Chip. Still not sure about this card but I just couldn't come up with anything that really floated my snowflake! I wanted to play with some stamps that had never seen the ink of day, and I pulled out some Impression Obsession winter ones. I already had an assortment of other snowflake stamps out, so I went with that theme:


You can't tell from the photo, but the snowflakes at top are stamped in craft white, then brushed with white/gold Pearlex. The bottom snowflake is heat embossed with white EP. The blue snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch. The word collage and the "Brr" are from the Impression Obsession set; the fun thing about clear stamps are that you can "bend" them to make a fun run like this! The snowflake centers are glitter dots from Gina K.

So let's see how you approach this challenge! If you don't have these exact colors, substitute something close!
