My base card is white.  I used a piece of watercolor paper and trimmed it with a stitched rectangle die.  I used Tim Holtz's Distress inks-Milled Lavender and Shaded Lilac to create the background.  Stampin' UP! So Saffron ink was sponged on the edges of the watercolor paper.  The snowflake is created using a die set from Reverse Confetti-Layered Snowflake.  I used SU card stock on the snowflake. (Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder and So Saffron)  The sentiment is stamped in black Versa Fine Ink.  Wink of Stella was added on the snowflake for sparkle.  

You can see what the rest of the DT created for inspiration by clicking on their names below. I hope you will check out their blogs and then come and play along with us.
