The uniqueness of a snowflake
I know, I know, snowflakes are white, and winter skies are blue! But as soon as I saw these stamps from Eureka, I knew I wanted to do pink and brown. No logical reason just pure whimsy! Actually, I had some Distress Embossing Powder in Tattered Rose (the ink color used), and my plan was to emboss the snowflake. But mystery of mysteries, it was nowhere to be found. I was really, really set on using the powder, so I literally searched for days, even though I could not afford the time. I never did find it, but my stamp room is a bit more organized at least! Last minute, I thought of the pearls, which of course, makes my non-conformist card all the stranger. And to top it all off, my husband informed me that snowflakes are hexagonal, not octagonal!
But perhaps it all fits together anyway ... we are indeed uniquely created by God; we don't need to fit into the world's idea who we should be, or what we should look like, we are made in His image!
The snowflake may be found HERE, and the text is HERE.
