Snowflakes are Winter's Butterflies
In addition to the fabulous Design Team cards, we are also joined by the super-creative Ashwini - her blog Experiments With Card Making Etc is a source of constant inspiration for me so I am delighted that she has joined us for this challenge.
Here is how I was inspired by the words:
I was definitely inspired by the snowflakes in the quote - we had a few around our place on the weekend but today was 13 degrees so they are all gone - I have to admit that I am happily anticipating the arrival of Winter.
For my card, I started out by sponging some Faded Jeans and some Tumbled Glass onto the card base. I die cut the Memory Box Frostyville corner from some Be Creative tape adhered to typing paper. I then removed the release paper and applied some diamond glitter, and adhered to the card base. Finishing touches are the silver embossed greeting, some clear droplets, and some teeny tiny clear sequins.
I will link up to a few challenges:
- Merry Monday where the challenge is Blue, White, and texture (my texture is glitter)
- Memory Box Challenge #6 - Glitter
- Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday - holiday cards
- Christmas Card Challenges - Anything Goes
- Fusion Card Challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping and be sure to take some Time Out to be inspired by words!
