Snow Much Fun

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend. Mine was good. I actually had a little time to relax on Sunday and just be lazy and watch football. So that was nice. Today's card is for 2 challenges; the color challenge on splitcoast and the KA-POW creative challenge on Carrie Gaskin's blog. The colors for the challenge on splitcoast was Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Pool Party. I LOVE these colors together. My first thought was to do a Christmas card with them. Then the KA-POW challenge was a sketch challenge.

I thought this sketch was kind of cool. Although I did mess up a little and not add something where the 3 buttons are. I should have moved my pearls to the bottom. Oh well, I still think the card is cute. The Pool Party background was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. On the Cherry Cobbler piece I stamped the small doily from Delicate Dolies. The snowman was stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock and colored in with White craft ink. I cut him out and adhered him to the one of the frames from the Designer Frames embossing folder. I added some Cherry Cobbler seam binding with a little tag and a little jingle bell (they are so cute!) And lastly, I added some of the new mica flakes around the snowman. These are pretty cool too. However, when I got them I was shocked at how big the container was that they were in. I will have these flakes for a long time! What a great deal! I hope you enjoyed today's christmas card. I am so glad that I have such a head start on my cards for the year. One less thing to stress about once December comes. I hope these challenges get you inspired to start on your holiday cards as well! Have a great day!
