Snowflakes....

Good day :) This card came together very quickly for me today and I've very pleased with it. I hadn't had a chance to play with my CTMH Snowflakes Stamp set which coordinates with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and I've been wanting to make these snowflakes for some time. Everything came together today! I cut them with my cricut and stamped them in Stampin Up's Craft white ink and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder.  The sentiment and snowflake on the inside is from the same stamp set.  I was so excited to use the tiny twinkle brads from CTMH, I think they add the perfect touch.

The Challenge at Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge #42 is to use animal prints.  Thankfully I saw one of the design team members using animals printed on the paper, rather than an animal print, cause I don't have any, lol.  So I used paper from the Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses paper pack which has tiny deer and penguins.  I also used sketch #16 from Freshly Made Sketches as this weeks challenge is their 1 year anniversay and you can choose any previous sketch you like.





I better get outside with the mutts, it's a beautiful day!

WOW, your card is wonderful!!!!! I love how you mix Cricut cuts and you make it so elegant! As for the animal print, the challenges are always optional as long as you make a Christmas/winter card. Thanks for joining us this week at CCC and we hope to see you again next challenge. Hugs, Brigitte
