Flurry of Wishes Revisited

Hello there!  Happy Sunday!

Today's post features the fifth (and final) card from my Christmas card class.  [You can see the first card here, the second card here, the third card here, and the fourth cards here.]  If you've been following my blog for a little while, you'll recognize this card pretty quickly as one I featured for the Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop.  The only change for this version is that I swapped out the Soft Sky for Pool Party.  I found with the first version that the Soft Sky was a little too pale and I wanted a little more color for the snowflakes.  You can find the first version here with more information about how to make the card.

I think what I like best about changing from Soft Sky to Pool Party is that the colors for the newer version remind me more strongly of the colors you see in a glacier.  A few years ago I took an Alaskan cruise through the Inside Passage with my sister and we visited the Mendenhall Glacier and the glacier at Tracy Arm.  Holy cow!  I never realized that water had so many colors when frozen.  It was amazing!  This photo was taken at the Mendenhall Glacier.  It was hard to believe that this is a constantly moving mass of ice.

Here's the inside sentiment area of the Pool Party/Island Indigo version of the card.

And here's the envelope for the Pool Party/Island Indigo version of the card.

Both cards are very pretty, but I like the contrast of the colors of the Pool Party/Island Indigo card best.

Have a great day!
