Call my baby lollipop...tell you why...his kiss is sweeter than an apple pie...

Hey, y'all! Thanks for coming back to visit me today! I'm back to post my card for the Serendipity Stamps monthly challenge. This month, we were to make a monochromatic card. Hmmm....no coloring? YIKES! I decided to make a set of card using my new Snowflake Flourish stamps. Aren't they gorgeous?

All of the inks used are Memento, except on the gold colored card. That one was done with Antique Linen & Tea Dye Distress Inks. I cut down four white panels to 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" and stamped the Let Heaven & Nature sentiment in Tuxedo Black. Then I stamped the large and small snowflakes in light and dark inks and sponged around the edges. Then I distressed the edges with my Tonic distressor tool, adding some faux stitching texture, and matted with black. Before I popped up the main panel onto the Kraft card base, I added half of a scalloped oval punched from black cardstock, set a white eyelet in the center, and tied a strip of coordinating ribbon through.  The finishing touch was some Diamond Stickles on the snowflakes...perfect! These are super easy to make, and easy to mail...perfect for holiday cards!

Be sure to check out what my awesome teammates have done with this challenge!!

Ahhh these are fantastic! Love the coloring!
By the way, I searched back and couldn't find, but I love the idea of using lyrics at the beginning - how/why did you start that? I've only been following you for a few months.
