This image was sent to me by Stef for a Mystery Image Challenge. For these Mystery image challenges there is an assigned hostess (Stef this time) who sends out the same image of her choosing to each of the participants. The hostess usually sends out several copies of the image to each participants...just in case of mistakes or we want to layer. The hostess also assigns us a person to sent to. Then we each make our own version of the card and mail it to our assignee. It's neat to see how each of us implements the same image into a card.

I was on the Hanna Stamps website a couple of weeks ago ordering a few new stamps and I came across this stuff they were selling called Flower Soft. I had never heard of it before, have you? So I had to Google it to see what one was suppose to do with this stuff. I found the Flower Soft website that had picture tutorials...interesting. So I bought 2 pots of Flower Soft from Kristi. One color purchased was Ivory (there is no white). I thought the Ivory would make great snow. And it does. Very very very easy to use too! It was really difficult to get a descent picture of the ivory "snow" oh white cardstock...but click on the close up picture and it will enlarge so you can kind of see what it looks like. Neat stuff! Go to Hanna Stamps now to get your own!

I Like the card. We have had Fl;ower Soft in UK for a couple of years now, its lovely to use, but you have to take care when posting cards with it on, cover the card with tissue or you will end up with an envelope full of Flower Soft!

This is so pretty. Great colors (very wintery) and I love the little details (rhinestone, ribbon, flower soft for snow) They add so much to this cute card.
