Basic Grey-challenge-9 (Ambrosia papers) & Sketch Saturday

Christmas is the theme for this weeks Basic Grey challenge. I used Coco's sketch for Sketch Saturday. I am thoroughly enjoying making Christmas cards in unusual colours this year. I used a PSX snowflake stamp and heat embossed it with Gold Tinsel powder, cut it out and layered it on tht center circles. The snowflake eyelet in the center was silver, so I heat embossed this with Gold Tinsel powder also (wasn't sure whether this would work - but it did) I layered snowflake acetate over the two larger circles but this doesn't really show on the photograph. Everything else from stash.
