Spotty Snowflake

Yes it's a Christmas card but is is July!! I realised I don't use my dies as much or as well as I could so I came up with this very simple idea yesterday!

I found some spotty paper I had in my stash and added a Craftwork Cards Sentiments and silver nailheads (also from stash).

I really like the simple effect...hope you do too!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Annabelle Stamps - Snowflakes
Crafty Catz - Spots
Ladybug Crafts - Christmas in July
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Hope you are having a good Saturday and staying out of the rain!!
