Ruby's Rainbow "Show Us Something New"

Good morning!  We are back from the holiday break with a new challenge for you; this fortnight Helen P. has chosen our challenge and it is "Show Us Something New."  Think new supplies, new technique, etc. Sounds fun!

I went with a new die that I "gifted" myself!  LOL  I layered the die cut over patterned paper to add a bit of interest and accented the snowflakes with Swarovski flatback crystals.  The crystals actually coordinate with the brown lettering, but they photographed darker.  A quick and simple card!  (Next time I will try a different method of adhering the die cut...I used a glue stick.  With all the detail, maybe a Xyron would be easier?  Anyone have any ideas?)

Paper: G.P. 110 CS, Carolees Creations Patterned Paper
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Smokey Topaz"
Extras: Lil' Inker Designs Die

Please check out the rest of the DT's creations here, along with the challenge details.  We would love to see your "something new"!
