Sparkly Snowflakes and Inspiration Card

This month's Sparkles Challenge is Snowflakes.  I want to thank Joan for this challenge.  I hope you have a chance to play along.  If you want to see what the design team created, check out our creations here.    My card was inspired by a card I'd seen on Pinterest.  Now mind card isn't going to look much like the inspiration card, but I was inspired none the less......and here is the card that inspired me.
Can you see the similarities?  Heather's flowers are grouped beautifully.  My snowflakes are randomly placed.  I have silver string and Heather has gold.  The stripes on the left side of the card are very similar.  I don't know how Heather made her stripes.  Mine were made by putting silver Colorbox ink on a stripe embossing folder and stamping with it.  Heather didn't have a sentiment, but I added Noel a die from Frantic Stamper.

I can only imagine the inside of Heather's card, I see flowers peeking out.  I'm sure the inside is as lovely as the outside.  Here is mine.
I always try to add elements from the outside of a card into the inside.  I repeated the stripes, added snowflakes and another Frantic Stamper Noel die.  Of course a sentiment was stamped and this card is finished.  

That's it for my May Sparkles Christmas Challenge.  I do hope you play along.  I'll be checking to see what you create.  

Until next time,
Happy May, I hope you find time to create and enjoy Spring.  It's been a long wet winter here and I am so looking forward to playing outside.
