Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Once again it was another fun Sketch Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers. For me this card was stepping a bit out of my comfort zone with the #3 layer. I normally would have made a circle out of card stock and stuck it in the designated area. But the first few cards I saw come in had flowers in that corner and I thought that was a cute idea. SO I looked for something that would go with a flower that would fit in the #4 spot. I didn't have to look very far. I saw the Stampin' Up! set "The More the Merrier" sitting on my worktable and I immediately knew I wanted to put a snowflake in that corner.

But this isn't just your everyday run of the mill snowflakes. It's made using white velvet paper. I found some in a stash I had. I don't even know how long I've had this paper. I don't even know if they still make it anymore either!!! It's fun paper to play with!!!

I used the Sizzix Snowflake die and I cut it in pieces so it would fit nicer behind the #4 piece. Now that I see it in the photo I think the bottom could have used one more piece of snowflake. I can always add it later.

I used the jumbo Snowflakes wheel on the Bashful Blue background and I sponged the edges in with the Bashful Blue too.

The snowmen were colored in using markers, mostly from the Soft Subtles family. There isn't a whole lot to this card. Once I found out what image I wanted to use the rest was easy!!!

If you have time and are up for a little challenge, head on over to SplitCoast and give this layout a try!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
