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!

Stamps:  CTMH Snowflakes
Paper:  Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses, kraft
Ink:  Stampin Up Craft White and Classic Soft Suede
Accessories:  CTMH Jolly twinkle brads, white embossing powder, ribbon from stash
