Snowflake - Copper Magic

I found the Metal Magic sheet in my craft stash and thought a snowflake in it would be lovely, it is a pure copper sheet, I used the Cuttlebug snowflake die and cut the shape and embossed it then the fun part, the snowflake started as a true copper colour and then I used my heat gun on it untill it started to change colour, it now has reds and purple colour ways running through it.
If you click the image it will enlarge it so you can see the beauty of the copper.
I stamped the background snowflake and the joy stamps and embossed with Blonde Moments powder.
Finished card 15x15cm

Beautiful card, love the copper. Obviously your 'stash' is greatly superior to mine - I can only manage copper coloured paper!
