Icy Blue

I love the blue on this backing paper, especially when combined with Stickles Diamond glitter glue. The paper is another designed by Carol. The snowflake is folded using 6 diamond shaped pieces, and uses a tile that I designed in Photoshop with colours picked off the backing paper. The fold is the May Challenge fold on Circle of Crafters designed by Carolyn (Carolyninoz), and the instructions can be found here.
I outlined the backing paper with Stickles, added the organza ribbon and sentiment sticker, and then matted it onto a darker blue to create a narrow frame. The medallion is finished off with a tiny brad to pull it down in the centre which is hidden by the punched and Stickled snowflake. It looks really pretty sitting here, twinkling in the sunlight! I tried to capture the twinkle on the photo, but wasn't too successful - the enlargement shows it a bit better.
