Snowflakes at Simon Says Stamp

Happy Wednesday, all!  It's time for another Simon Says Stamp challenge, and this time we've chosen
Snowflakes as our theme.  The Design Team is using Ritz glitters on all our projects, and we'd sure like to see your designs with them, too, but if you don't have them, that's okay.  Just make something that showcases snowflakes.

When I was looking around the Simon Says Stamp store, I found this darling little tree in a stoneware crock and couldn't wait to get it home and play with it.  I've collected stoneware for a long time, and love the idea of a baby tree set inside a crock.  So I further countrified it with these papers from Echo Park's Winter Wishes pad, and then just added my sentiment banner and a couple of punched snowflakes.  Love how it turned out!

SSS Snowflakes, Dec. 5

The stamp is by Impression Obsession, called Snowflake Tree, and the papers are Echo Park's Winter Wishes.  As I said, we used Ritz Glitters, and they are really super-fine!  I used the Ice Blue color along with my Sakura glue pen and colored the little snowflake hanging from the tree and also the design on the crock.  I also used the Cool Highlight color on the bits of snow on the branches.  And I coated both of my punched snowflakes with a glue stick, then dipped them into each glitter.  Here's a more detailed photo to show them both:
