Here's my take on the Winter Challenge!
I started with my newest Flourishes Stamp set; A Season of Celebrations! I love the gorgeous silhouettes in this set! They are fabulous for techniques and work perfect for simple cards. Mine ended up somewhere in between LOL! I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout, and I kept my colours monochromatic so I could also play the Playing in Paradise Challenge at Scrapbooker's Paradise!
The sledding silhouette from A Season of Celebrations was stamped on text designer paper by Authentique in Versamark then embossed with navy embossing powder. I cut it into a circle and layered it on a navy Lacey Circle. The Sahara Sand card base was embossed with snowflakes and the designer paper is from Bo Bunny's Midnight Frost designer paper from last year. I added a felt snowflake secured with a snowflake brad, then I picked up my White Opal liquid pearls and probably should have put them down sooner than I did! I added a pearl to the centre of every snowflake and then I created a "snowfall" of pearls in the sledding scene. I think it's kind of fun!
Come on now...this is the one way to enjoy winter. You don't have to drive or shovel. You won't get cold or wet. You'll be able to create a wonderful wintry card in the warm cozy comfort of your studio. And remember to link it up here when you're done, so we can marvel at your fabulous creations...in the comfort of our cozy slippers!
