Sparkly Pink Snowflakes

I saw this pretty pink snowflake card on SCS last week and ever since then I've been wanting to make something with pink snowflakes.  And I really liked the most recent sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches:

Just under the wire!  And then Dynamic Duos went with monochromatic pinks, so it just had to happen!

So here's what I did:

I kind of wish that snowflake from Mixed Medley was just a little bit bigger for this sketch.  Just for funsies (and because I hadn't used it in a long time), I coated the snowflake in Iridescent Ice embossing powder.

Then I kinda wanted to see what it would look like with more "traditional" blue snowflakes (though if you wanna get technical, real snowflakes are white).

ETA:  Just discovered that my blue snowflake card works for Nacho Average Challenge #24, bonus!

So which one do you like better, the pink & gold or the blue & silver?  I like 'em both!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Wow, both cards are fabulous, but I'm swinging toward the uniqueness of the pink and gold. Very cool. Thanks for playing along with my sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

I like them both, but I think I am more drawn to the blue one. Don't know why, just am. :)

I love the non-traditional colors used on your pink card, and I love the sparkle! Thanks for playing with the Dynamic Duos.
