Spiros in Blue!

Hello!  Today's card features stamps from the spiros2stamp set from The Stamps Of Life.  Do you remember those little spirograph machines when we were younger?  I know my sisters and I sure got a kick out of creating beautiful shapes in different colors when we were little.  I think they also take on a doily look in white, or snowflakes-as I was going for this look on my card!  I know several people with December birthdays so I wanted it to have an icy, snowy look to it.
First, I stamped  my large spiros in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  To create the background I brayered and sponged several different blues.  The smaller spiros, are stamped in Pacific Point and then I just stamped them without reinking to get the lighter color.  The sentiment is stamped in Licorice (black).  I am LOVING Stephanie's new ink pads.  They are super juicy and stamp like a dream.  They also dry quickly, too.  You will definitely see me using these more!
I finished the card off with a MS punch border and some denim twine from The Twinery.  I love my twine!

Thanks for stopping by today!
