Patchy Penny's Snowflake

Hi Everyone, Well this week I have made this card. I am using it for the Winter Challenge at Lacy Sunshine facebook page. I have colored her with Promarkers, and have used Memory Box Snowflakes for the background, cut from glimmer paper, and then I have used some flowers from my stash to decorate the leaves were punched with the bird builder punch, and the pine bows from MS punch.The paper to decorate was from an old DCVW stack, don't remember the name and the sentiment is from Petite Pairs from Stampin Up.

My card uses the best set that ever came out from Stampin Up, of course that is my opinion, but anyway it is Lovely as a tree. I have used the large stamp with the trees, I have stamped it onto the background and then again onto the tag. I have sponged the sky, and added lots of glitter for the snow. Love how it turned out, but it isn't just a card, it is a gift card holder, when opened up the gift card slides out the bottom. I love this style. Anyway thanks for looking.

Color Challenge at HJC

This week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, we have an unusal color challenge, you actually have a choice between a number of combinations of colors, so much fun. Anyway I have used the Blue White and Silver combination for my card. I am using an image from one of our sponsors Fitztown, which this is called Winter 10, one of my favorite images from them. Some of the other ladies have done some great cards using our other sponsor Art by Miran, so you will have to pop by to check them out. I have used an embossing resist technique for the background first stamping the snowflakes from Snowflake Soiree set from Stampin Up on to the background embossed with clear embossing powder, then went over with Night of Navy Ink. I have added some icicles which I have die cut, a new one for me. for the edges of the card, and then added some beautiful two tone blue and a white rose to the card with some pine branch sprigs. To finish it off I added the greeting from Petite Pairs from Stampin Up.
