A snowflake is a winter's butterfly

The theme of the Tag You're It challenge is snow is falling. Please click on the photo for a close up.

I wanted to use non-traditional colours for my snowflakes, so made a background out of dabbers, and stamped with white and purple. The butterfly panel uses the 'kissing' technique - I inked up a solid stamp and then pressed the butterfly onto it to remove the ink and leave an impression.
