Cardabilities Sketch #42 and "The Colour Throwdown" #167 {Sweet Winter Wishes}

The weekend is here and I am so excited to have a day to stamp! All week, I have been meaning to get to the Colour Throwdown and Cardabilities challenges!  Both were really fun this week and pushed me out of my comfort zone. I love that!  I used my new My Favourite Things stamps to create this card!  I was also excited to use some scraps of DSP that I had been hoarding saving for a layout just like this!!!

My image is coloured with Copics and I pulled out some Circle Nestabilities to create the frame around the main image. The background is Pretty in Pink, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  I also decided to add some bling to the image and punched out two snowflakes from glimmer paper. I love that stuff!  The inside is also finished off with DSP and a sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

  3. Hi Lesley! oh this little MFT image is just so sweet! I love the way you used the colors here and the sweet little sparkly snowflakes are just perfect. :) Thanks for wishing my boy a happy birthday! He had his party today he said it was the "best birthday ever" so I guess that's high praise from a 9 year old! Ha! ;) Hope you are having a great weekend. :)
