Bermuda Snowflakes

I think my Internet has a case of the Mondays today, it's really slow.  I mean, slower than normal, 'cause no matter what the commercials say, British Internet is not fast.  Probably doesn't help that I've been uploading tons of pictures to Winkflash for the past week, I'm probably sucking up all the bandwidth for Norfolk County.

But I persevered to post this card today:

You really can't tell from this picture, but it's very sparkly IRL because the whole white panel is covered with Iridescent Ice EP, which is notoriously difficult to photograph.  I got the color combo from Create with Connie and Mary:

And the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

And if I don't get ready right now I'm going to miss my class at the gym, so ta-ta for now.  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Festive Flurry, More Merry Messages
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Versamark
Paper:  Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White, Winter Frost Specialty DSP, some old retired DSP scraps for the flags
Accessories:  Iridescent Ice EP

I bet that Irridecent Ice is so shimmery/glittery in real life! What a fantastic non-traditional color selection for the holidays! Thanks for joining us in the color challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary.
