Golden Snowflakes

Hi all!
Here is a card I have quickly made to try out my new gold Encore ink pad......Encore really are the best metallic inks IMHO! :)

I have made a card blank from purple shimmer card from Anne Marie Designs, and I then punched two snowflakes out of a piece of paper to use as templates. The larger is Martha Stewart, the smaller is just a random one. I then just placed them at points around the card blank and inked through the templates (shown in the picture). The sentiment is a freebie from a mag but it's from Crafts Beautiful. I wanted to put some gold gems or pearls in the middle of a couple of the snowflakes but I can't seem to find them!
This is obviously to enter into the LIM One Layer - Use Ink challenge this week! And I have to say, it really is a challenge, trying to come up with new ways of using ink! I shall be blog hopping tonight for ideas and techniques! :)
Oh and sorry about the camera is making it very hard to take pics since the screen has gone!
