Let it Snow, Let it Snow.......and it will!!
Here's my entry for this week's OWH Stars and Stamps sketch challenge #203. I took a few liberties with the sketch because I wanted to use some die cut pieces I'd cut for previous projects and never used. The fancy die cut is a Lotus from Spellbinders in vanilla cardstock, while the SU! bird is perched upon a woodland branch die cut. The sentiment was done on die-cut feathers with a Casual Friday's stamp, and the main color is Pool Party with dark grey scraps for the banners. I'm also entering this card into the Snippets playground #103, because practically everything used was a found snippet in my stash!
Here's an adorable pre-colored image from Laurie Furnell that I used to make this card for the Cards in Envy "Icy or Hot" challenge. Obviously I went with icy, as it's been snowing here in PA and it's not even officially winter yet!! I used papers from a Fancy pants Blizzard paper pad, and added a couple felt snowflakes along with some red gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty. The sentiment was a printed border from the stack, so that worked out perfectly to make a quick & simple card and it's flat enough to mail with just one stamp! Yay!
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is to "let it snow."
Stay warm and have a great week! Thanks for stopping by as always :)
