A Little Flurry

Ok, this is my second post of the day,thing is I felt a bit of a fake with my earlier card as the idea was a borrowed one so I thought I'd post another card for the same challenge,just to make myself feel better lol! I'm so glad I did as I'm desperate for some quick,simple cards to give out at work and these tiny 3" makes are just perfect!

The first card I fiddled with,you know what it's like,I added a silver marker edge to my card, I couldn't decide which size of gem to go with sooooo

I made another,these are so quick and easy,just a partially embossed snowflake using just the folder from my Cuttlebug Ice Crystal cut and emboss.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
LIM One layer, snow,
OCL95, Clean and Simple Holidays,
Polka Doodles 49,Quick Christmas (at 2 mins a piece I'd call it super quick lol!)
Simply Create Too 2,Embossing,
Crimbo Crackers 4,Embossing.
That feels better! Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
