Creative Nugget: If you've been following my blog for a while, you know that pink and green is one of my favorite color combinations...even for Christmas. I stayed true to the sketch, layering Neenah Solar White, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, and Eskimo Kisses DP by Basic Grey. A Martha Stewart Snowflake Border Punch was used at the bottom of the pink layer. All panels were sponged with either Peeled Paint, Spun Sugar, or Aged Mahogany Distress Ink before being stitched to the card base. The The Patterned Pines were stamped in Old Olive and Dasher was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. A torn layer was added for snow and Stickles applied for sparkle. This panel was pierced because my little Sew Mini would not sew through all the layers! The sentiment is from an adorable snowman set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Welcome Jesus. A torn layer and Stickles were added to the sentiment panel as well. A little bling and a bow for Dasher complete the card. It's hard to see in the photo, but this card really sparkles!
Stop by and see more fabulous samples by the other Sugar Babies. As always...we can't wait to see how you use the sketch this week! Thanks to all who participated in our Design Team Call last week. The entries were wonderful...I'm so glad I don't have to be the one deciding who the next Sugar Baby will be!
Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend! I'll be anxiously waiting to see if I've made the next round of the Last Card Standing Contest!
