Whoever heard of pink snow in September

Another card ready for the craft market on Sunday. For this one I played along with the sketch challenge on Stamps and Smiles:

Still in my pink phase, I created this:

Stamp sets: Scandinavian Season, A Tree for all Seasons, Seasonal Wishes
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Rose Red
Ink: Versamark, Regal Rose
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1-3/8" Circle
Taffeta Ribbon: Whisper White
Other: White EP, Heat and Stick Powder, Dazzling Diamonds, Soft Subtle Brads
Non-SU: Acetate

The winter tree was stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with white EP. Faint sparkly snowflakes are stamped with Versamark, covered with Heat and Stick powder, heat embossed, covered with Dazzling Diamonds and then heated again to set. Pink snowflakes are done as the faint sparkly snowflakes but Regal Rose was added to the stamp after the Versamark. White snowflakes were stamped with Versamark on acetate and heat embossed with white powder. The white snowflakes were attached with Pretty in Pink brads.

Thanks for stopping by.
