Snowflakes & Sparkles

From The Funkie Junkie
Whoo hoo! My friend Wendy, aka Looby Lou, of Digital Delights is sponsoring the challenge at the Creative Card Crew this week. She generously gave each of the DT their choice of one of her latest releases to work with. I picked Jingles the Snowman. Isn't he adorable? And not much to color, either - hehehe!! The challenge theme this week is favorite things. Isn't that the most fun challenge ever? You just make a card using your very favorite things and you are qualified for the challenge. If you are one of my blog readers, you have probably already guessed that one of my favorite things is TAGS!! So here I am, back again with another tag this week. Plus I added some bling. So here is a pretty simple card this week. The base is Soft Sky topped with a layer of Whisper White run through the Snowflakes Cuttlebug EF. Used my Top Note die to cut a piece of BG Figgy Pudding designer paper and a Spellbinders tag die to cut the tag. Creamy Caramel was used to ink distress the edges. I masked Jingles and sponged Soft Sky around him then colored him a bit with Copics. The tiny snowflakes were punched with a Martha snowflake border punch and the other snowflakes are Cuttlebug dies. A little Dazzling Diamonds glitter and some Prima crystals and the card was good to go. Oh, the flowers? They were handmade by punching four small hearts and four larger hearts with my old CM Heart Maker. The hearts were ink distressed and either stamped or embossed, crumpled up and formed together to shape a flower. The crystal brads are from the Pretties Kit.

And now I'm checking out for the week. Wishing all you Americans a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving with your loved ones.

What a beautiful card! And thank you for the idea for the flowers, I think I have that same punch you mention and never use it, it would be great to dig it out and have something to do with it :-)
