Have a Dazzling Winter!

Hello Everyone, and welcome back to another Wednesday of Add a Little Dazzle inspiration!
We continue to celebrate Christmas in July; this week's challenge is 'SNOW'~

Here is your inspiration photo~

The Design Team chose to use the Craft Metal Sheet colors, Wondrous White and Baby Blue.  You can use whatever colors you would like.  Use of Craft Metal Sheets is not required, but, of course we would love to see you use them if you have them!
I used a large piece of Baby Blue Craft Metal and dry embossed it, them removed the color from the embossed areas (yes, it was a lot of spots!) by using a Q tip and rubbing alcohol.  I created my window with a circle die and white cs. I wanted to tone down the shine of the metal a bit so tried a piece of vellum over it.  To my surprise, it toned down the blue but accentuated the embossed, silver areas that had the color removed, for a really awesome look.  I cut my vellum a hair smaller than the craft metal sheet so that a shiny edge of blue remained.  My snowflakes were die cut using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Snowflake Dies.

 Bling was added to the center and seam binding was added across the window panel before adhering the snowflake.  The sentiment is from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps set, Winter Girls; it was embossed in Early Espresso on vellum and adhered across the window. 

I hope you can join us for this fun Christmas Challenge! 
 There is a $15 gift certificate up for grabs!
