Celebrating Winter

Hello All,
Announcement: I want to give a HUGE thank you to the Paper Craft Crew and its voters for making me the Featured Artisan this week.  Click HERE to see the post!  I grabbed their badge and is proudly displayed on my blog. Thank you again.

I hope this post finds you well and warm.. Speaking of warm, I will be waking up to -6 tomorrow so why not embrace the cold with a nice winter card!

I used the sketch from the The Paper Crew Challenge (PCCCS126) and the color inspiration from the House of Cards January color challenge. The colors were so much fun to work with and glitter is always a fun add on.

I am also entering the Make My Monday Challenge! This is the perfect card for the challenge. I made it for my daughter who has a birthday in two weeks.

Winter Birthday Theme
The sketch however was a bit challenging. I am not really a bow person but by using the winter theme I implemented a snowflake instead of a bow and justified it to the left. My sentiment is from Blooming with Kindness from Stampin' Up!. Part of the snowflake is from a paper stack I had around then layered it with the Festive Flurries Stamp and Die set. I also saw a hint of stripes on the bottom of the sketch so I just made them wavy and glittery. This stamp by Stacy Stamps - Stained glass wave has become one of my favorites! It is so versatile the possible designs are endless..  Well enough chit-chat here is my card.  I hope you enjoy it..

Paper piecing was done to create the border

 Glittery reflections

Lots of dimension and glitter

This color scheme is perfect for a winter birthday!
Thank you guys so much again.. We will see you soon.. Good night.
