Crazy 4 Challenges C4C1



I found a new blog called Crazy 4 Challenges that posted their first challenge today. This week it's a sketch challenge designed by Cindy Haffner, and if you're looking for inspiration, check out the amazing DT they have over there! You'll love the fabulous cards those talented ladies created.
For my card I began with an old Quickutz snowflake die and cut it out of PTI bitty box dsp. I stamped a big snowflake in Soft Sky on the white circle panel and matted it with Soft Sky textured cardstock. The brads were pressed in a Versamark pad, dipped in Winter Wonderland ep, and embossed for some sparkle. The sentiment is by Inkadinkado and it's on a Nestability tag die, strung up with some Soft Sky double stitched ribbon. I added a prima and some piercing for finishing touches.
Thanks for stopping by on this gorgeous day! I hope you're enjoying your extended weekend!
