Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

Ok, so I'm a day late with this!!! I didn't get it done until late Wednesday night!!! I saw the sketch on Tuesday night (or was it in the wee hours of Wednesday morning???) and I thought it looked like something I didn't want to play with. I think my thoughts were clouded by all the other things I had to get done during the day that I didn't think I would have any time to play.

Well, it was late but I did find the time!!

I got this beautiful flocked snowflake paper at Archiver's. The photo doesn't do the paper justice at all. The blue part (where it's not flocked) has a pearly look to it. It's just stunning. You can sort of see it if you click on the photo.

I cut the snowflake into three pieces and layered them on the card. I went on my computer and printed out the "let it snow" in the Baja Breeze color. I punched the words out with a 1-1/8" square punch and I finally got to use my square scallop punch!!! Don't you just LOVE brand new punches??? LOL

This was a lot easier sketch than I thought it was last night when I first saw it. I checked out what some of the other stampers did with this layout on SplitCoast and I was totally impressed. I wished I would have looked there first before I finished my card. After seeing what is on there I think I could have embellished the card and done a bit more to it to jazz it up. Oh well!!! This is what I had in my mind and that is what came out on paper!!!

If you have time hop on over to SplitCoastStampers and play along with the Sketch Challenge. They are a lot of fun and I can't emphasise enough how fun it is to play with a new layout!!!

Thanks SO much for looking,

This is a beautiful card, even more so because of it's simplicity.
