Snowflake Christmas

Challenges

A Gem Of A Challenge (10) - Sketch/Non Traditional Christmas
Whoopsie Daisy - Holiday
A Spoonful Of Sugar (131) - Anything Goes
Digital Tuesday (86) - Let It Snow

ABC - I is for Ice & Snow
Crafty Creations (95) - Christmas
Fab 'N' Funky (50) - Anything Goes

To make my card I have followed the sketch and used untraditional colours of jade green, pink and silver. As soon as I saw these papers I knew I wanted to make a card with them, they are gorgeous. The digi stamp is precoloured and I have added gems to the tree. All the snowflakes are die cut and punched with gems added to the centres. A bit of ribbon and sentiment finishes it off. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Card Recipe

Sentiment - Papermania
