Royal Blue Season's Greetings and BLOG CANDY

Hello again fabulous Crafters! 
I love Royal Blue for Snowflake themed cards, don't you?  
Here's a card I've created showing how to use some of Sue's NEW Snowflake dies from her 2015 Festive Collection found HERE;

Love this color combo;  The silver background paper used here is actually taken from a metallic silver Wallpaper Roll . It's also used for the lovely border and multiple silver cuts. IRL, these silver cuts look more striking against the royal metallic blue. This card was very easy to do as all I've done was cut out the sections out, layered them and adhered them. The greeting panel was stamped, cut out and popped up with foam adhesive over the snowflake tag in the set for added interest. I've double layered the snowflake Background for weight and added bling throughout for a finished sparkly look. :)
