SSHP14: Snowflakes Gone Wild!!!

I have really been into snowflakes lately, so when I found out that was the challenge at Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential this week, I just had to play! I also used a MOJO Monday sketch.

I received this cute Lily image from my friend Jessica and she has been sitting on my table for awhile now.... Just waiting for the right project.... I love the Pink Cat Studio images, but this Lily is just a bit different.... Can you tell what the difference is? She has no culiques! They are tucked inside of her hat! I think she is just the cutest!

I paper pieced Lily's outfit and that was a challenge! It took me a few tries to get the DP lined up "just so".... I think I've got the hang of it now! I added a touch of Martha Stewart Crystal Fine glitter to her hat brim and muff.

To make the snowflake, I used 3 different Spellbinders dies and glittered up the first and third layers and then embellished it with a brad. I used Art Glitter in "Fossil".

Not sure if you can see in the photo or not, but the strip across the top says "Winter Wonderland".

Image: Pink Cat Studio
Paper: SU! Cranberry Crisp, Kelly Panacci DP, KI Memories DP
Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Fossil", Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, Spare Parts Brads
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Dies, Foam Tape

Thanks for stopping by; have a super day!

OMgoodness! This is just the cutest thing! I do love that image, exactly because her curls are hidden--it just gives her a more grown-up look LOL!

Perfect paper piecing, Angela! Wonderful array of snowflakes; my favorite is the one-of-a-kind you created with the dies. Great touch of sparkle, too!!
