Merry Monday #97 {Aqua, Silver and White}

Happy Merry Monday!

Is everyone else experiencing an "Olympic withdrawal" like me? Wow...what an amazing month its been for our Canadian Olympic Team! So i guess I will get back into my series of Vampire Dairies on Netflix ;)

We are having a GORGEOUS color combo challenge this week at Merry Monday - check it out:

I apologize now for the lighting on the "aqua" of my snowflake...I chose Tempting Turquoise as my "aqua" and although this top snowflake looks more blue, it really is turquoise ;) 

I received my goodies from Lil' Inker Designs and decided to get playing - I am in LOVE with this new Chevron Cover Die...I know I'm going to have a schwack-load of fun with this one!!!  Just imagine all the different possibilities of patterns you can create.....

I stamped snowflakes from the SU! set Festive Flurries and die cut them out with their dies as well. The Merry Christmas die is from Paper Smooches :) Added some bling, popped up the snowflakes, done! Easy peesy...Oh, and I embossed northern lights embossing powder on the large snowflake for some added sparkle!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Christmas Card Challenges - Anything Goes
Cut It Up - Blue/White and a Die Cut
Fun With Shapes and More - Snowflakes
The Stamping Boutique - Use a punch or die cut

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week - the color combo is so pretty! For more inspiration, please hop on over to the Merry Monday Challenge Blog HERE and see what the talented Merry Makers have for you! Happy crafting!
