Melting Point

     I love snowflakes and I like blue so why not put them together for a CAS Christmas card.
     52 CCT have a recipe this week that went very nicely with a blue challenge at CHNC and a CAS card at TGOC, so this is what I came up with.
     I have a splat stencil which is great fun to use so I thought about the puddle a melting snowflake would make and chose to use Distress Ink Salty Ocean. I have also edged my white card blank with the same ink. Through past mistakes I have learnt not to work directly on the card blank, so many have been lost that I now work on a topper and mount it when I'm happy with it.
     The snowflake has been stamped in Archival Ink Cobalt and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Crystal Sparkle powder. There is a single gem in the middle of the flake. The sentiment has also been stamped in Cobalt but left plain.
     There is a narrow dark blue ribbon running across the bottom, which when you use a topper is easy to tuck the ends under for a tidy finish.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
