Windy Flurries

Good Evening Everyone,

For today I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches, House of Cards and City Crafter Challenge Blog. All are fantastic challenges that inspired me to create this card. Enjoy.

Double stamping the 'wind' creates a very pretty effect. I used different shades of blues and grays that were found on the patterned paper beyond the snowflake window.
The monochromatic color scheme creates an elegant look with a bit of fun. 
The outer layer of the card is popped up using dimensional
adhesive for a bit more depth. 
Linking up with the following challenges:

   

The snowflake window was an interesting experiment. I die cut the smaller snowflake then die cut the bigger snowflake on top of the smaller one using Festive Flurries Die Cut set by Stampin' Up! (retired). I ended up with these fragments of snowflake. At first I was disappointed then inspiration hit to use them on the base of the card around the smaller flake. It adds a bit more color and definition to the design.

The layout was totally inspired by all these blog. The most influential of these layouts was Freshly Made Sketches. I loved this sketch the minute I saw it and had to link up! As usual, I have waited to the last minute to submit my card. One of these days I will be proactive and do these in advance. LOL who am I kidding?

I am going to bother you with one more post tonight and do hope you can join me there too. Until then take care and thank you for stopping by!

All the best,
Shawna
