Snowflake Sparkles

I wanted to try coloring an embossing folder then embossing card stock.  I've seen a few samples in my web surfing the last few weeks. 
I used the Stampin Up Northern Flurry embossing folder and a Night of Navy
Watercolor Crayon on the bumpy side of the folder. I spritzed it and ran it through the Big Shot with Whisper White card stock. The process put the color on the opposite side of what I was wanting because I did not think it through.  I used the really nice colored side but the debossed snowflake side. I was amazed at the variety of colors that appeared.  I mounted it on Soft Sky card with some wet glue and double sided tape in the corners to help the paper flatten out a bit.  I stamped the MC greeting from the Four the Holidays with NofN ink on white. I then cut a piece of NofN card stock and trimmed to the leave a small border. I added rhinestones in the center of 3 snowflakes and on the greeting banner.
