Snowflake Welcome

I decided to take a break from cardmaking to create this snowflake welcome
sign. My dear husband cut me 21 of these snowflakes and I've been wondering
what to do with them. Then I saw a sign at a garden centre that spelled
welcome. I would have bought it but it cost $40.00, not likely! I stamped and
embossed with very vanilla and clear embossing powder the letters and
snowflakes then sponged early espresso onto the top of the snowflakes. Its
very hard to see in the photo but because I left the inside of the snowflakes
plain it almost frames them, its really nice. After sponging I put diamond
stickles on the snowflakes and letters and then let it dry. I outlined the letter
with a white gel pen to give them more definition and lastly tied them
together. I really want to put a large bow on the top but I don't do bows very
well, especially not large ones, so I may have to buy or beg someone to do ones
for me, lol! I've entered this into Tuesday Taggers which is to make a
decoration. I know they probably meant with paper but I did stamp and
emboss it so I'm hoping they accept it, lol!

Stamps: stampin up serene snowflakes, lovely letters alphabet
Paper: none
Ink: early espresso, very vanilla
Other: clear embossing powder, silver and gold cord, wood snowflakes
