I used the Be Merry stamp set which features lots of adorable sentiments. I also used one of my favorite winter sets, Fresh Snow for all of the snowflakes. I embossed them in white and then blended 3 different ink colors over top to create a fun rainbow effect. Some clear sequins were the final touch!
