My Friend, Sugar Nellie Challenge #19
Good Afternoon! I hope everyone is having a good week. I have been really busy at work because I am filling in for someone on vacation. I woke up really early this AM and couldn't get back to sleep. I saw that Sugar Nellie posted their new challenge so I thought might as well make good use out of the time! This challenge was to follow the sketch and use Pink and Brown.
I fell in love with this Sugar Nellie Home Grown stamp. It is different than any other winter stamps I have. When I saw the layout of the challenge I knew I had to use it. I also knew that I could use my new spellbinders die. I thought it looked plain when I cut it out so I ran it though my snowflake cuttlebug folder. I couldn't decide what to do with the middle of the circle so I layed the snowflakes out that were sitting on my table from punching the bottom of the card. As you can see they also made it on to the sky above image. I know those who know me are shocked that I didn't make a blue cloudy sky as I seem to do on just about every image. I liked it plain and then thought that when it snows the sky is white, not blue so it looked "normal" white.
I didn't have any snowflakes to put in the bottom right of the card so I used the biggest snowflake punch I have, which is still small, and layered them for the embelleshment. It's winter so I had to make snow for the ground. I decided to use glitter for it. I also glittered her pom pom.
I hope you like my card. Let me know what you think.
