Grocery Shopping's Done, So...

I couldn't resist putzing with the last layout in order to make use of the gorgeous Wintergreen designer paper. When I made the first card (above), I didn't have the Peaceful Wishes set, so my ornament was suspended in snowflakes. Well, since I had the set just laying there on my desk and I hadn't used the branch in my other design, it only seemed right to give it a try.

I used Always Artichoke CRAFT ink, and embossed the branches afterwards. Then I went in with River Rock classic ink and stamped again. (Tonight I'll tell my ladies to do it the other way--much easier!) The falling snowflakes had to stay, but I'm a big stickler about proportion, so I had to use Snow Flurries instead of the larger ones from the original design. I'm pleased--what do you think?

Since I liked both designs, the gals will get to make 2 of the original and one of the revised. I wish I could keep things simple, but it's too fun to use all the tools at hand for cool results!

If there's time, I think I'll let the gals try making the snowflake. Sandra's a fast stamper, so I'm sure she'll have time. Off to do a few more things to prepare. Don't you wish YOU were coming tonight?
