Snowy Christmas

Hello!  It was a busy week/weekend; between work, Homecoming activities, the dance, and cupcakes I didn't seem to get much accomplished.  We sure did have lots of fun though!

I combined the Creative Card Crew Christmas Challenge with Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch.  Our Sponsor for Tuesday Morning Sketches is Raisin Boat...they sent me an adorable set called Snow Animals.  It was a fun set to work with...thank you Raisin Boat!

I started by stamping the center panel with trees and "snow".  The Santa Snow Bird was colored with pencils, glittered up, and mounted on some die cuts.  The papers are lightly distressed, and I've added ribbon and a glittery, layered snowflake for embellishing.

Image: Raisin Boat
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Palette Burnt Umber, SU! Soft Sky
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, and Pure Poppy, The Paper Studio DP
Embellies: PTI Vintage Cream Grosgrain Ribbon, SU! Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Art Glitter in "Polar Bear", PTI Button
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, MFT "Let it Snowflake" Die-namics Dies, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will stop over to check out the DT cards and details for Creative Card Crew's Christmas Challenge here.

You can check out Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch here, along with the DT samples.

I hope you will play along with both challenges...you could do as I did and combine the two!

I am also entering my card in the following challenge:

Thanks for stopping by!
