Good morning bloggers!
Happy Saturday!
Here is my GDT card for  2 Sisters Challenge blog
where the theme this week is Snowflakes!
I had two cards in my head so I made them both! lol
Here's the first one!

I used an A6 card blank which is folded at the top!
I added some red vellum which I've had forever but don't seem to
 use much although I do really  like it.
Next I added a snowflake embossed panel.
I think this was a Papermania embossing folder.
Before attaching it to the card I wrapped my snowflake
ribbon around it. The ribbon is from Lidl, they sometimes have 
some great things for crafting! If you keep your eyes peeled! 
I also used a peel off sentiment! 
Sometimes you just have to!

A closer look at the embossed panel!
I added a snowflake which was cut with a Marianne Designs die.
Luckily it was in my box from last year as I can't find those dies!

Here's a side view to let you see that the vellum is loose at the 
top & bottom & I gave it a bit of a curl, just because...

Here's the second card!
same colours, same size & shape of card & pretty much the came
ingredients but I've used a Cuttlebug embossing folder. 

I used red foil paper for matting on this card.
As you can see I dotted a couple of self adhesive gems about!
I did think about adding a bow but when I tied it it made the card too bulky
to be mailed in the UK using a normal stamp, (especially as I want to 
include a Christmas letter) so I left it off!

Here again is a side view!
This weeks sponsor is 

I hope you can join in the challenge.
I'm sure everyone will make a card with a snowflake somewhere
on it at this time of year!
