Snowfall in June?

Nothing like having a beachy themed LO on monday, and a snowy card today! I guess that kind of fits with living in Chicago, where the temps can fluctuate from 98 degrees one day to 54 the next! ; ) 
 JustRite is releasing their new sets this week and this one called, Snowfall, is beautiful.  I decided to use a sort of "Spotlighting" technique on it.  I stamped it with Versamark and white embossing powder, but then also stamped it with pink, blue, and purple die inks.  I used 2 sizes of circle punch to punch several circles and layer them over the white background.  I think it makes for a neat effect! 
The flowers and felt "leaves" are by Prima.  I coated the leaves with Stickles to give it a bit of sparkle. I also  added a bit seam binding tied with a thin white string. The sentiment is part of the Large Fancy Holiday Sentiments.  I absolutely LOVE the font used in this set!
I added a few pearls too. : )


Here is a  peek at the two sets! 

Be sure to visit the other gals and see what they've created with these beautiful sets!


I am off to get caught up on a lot of things that were left neglected in my house.....it IS the first day of summer vacation! ; )
Have a great day!!!
