I thought I would be creative today and combine two challenges. The first challenge was from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 22. I had so many ideas with this layout but came to a final decision when I combined it with a second challenge from Peachy Keen Stamps challenge 13.
The MMSC22 was straight forward follow the sketch below.

The PKS Challenge 13 requirements included:
  • Make a card
  • Use colors Blue and Purple in your design (can be subtle or bold)
  • Use a stamped image
  • Must include at least 3 snowflakes (can be more)
  • Must include a Greeting

  • This is the card I created today! If you click the picture it's easier to see the sparkle in the larger version. I just loved this paper. Wish I knew what brand it was.

    I tried showing some of the dimension to the card in an angle photo but it didn't turn out so well. The purple base the snowman sits on is raised with pot dots as well as all the snowflakes! It's so cute it makes me smile!
