"Burgundy Snowflake"

Have you ever had the perfect card in your head and when you went to make it, it wasn't at all what you thought it was going to be? C'mon I know you have. I do it all the time. Well, I just got my paper order in so I could start my Christmas cards. I know I am so late. Anyway, I ordered two packs of almost amethyst and some white grosgrain that I was going to dye amethyst for my Christmas cards. So I sit down tonight and make the perfect card. WRONG!!! It didn't look at all what I wanted. So I tried one with close to cocoa, regal rose, and amethyst. Cute, but not what I wanted. Then I tried, amethyst and lovely lilac. That was a bust too. I was bound and determined to use the amethyst. Seeing how I now have three and a half packs of it. But I can't do it. Nothing was looking good. Maybe because there was to much pressure, maybe I was trying too hard. I don't know. So I changed gears and came up with this. Burgundy and chocolate chip. I love it, however, I don't have a full pack of Burgundy. I think I can make about 20 cards. So I will have to find something else. Maybe I can work something out with the amethyst, and it will cooperate enought to make me a cute card.

Rochelle,
What a beautiful card. I used this same set for my cards. Wish I had seen this first because I would have used a brad in the middle of my snowflakes too. Oh well, too late now!
