Winter Wonderland





So we have two pictures of the card today! My sweet husband helped me to take the pictures! I had trouble getting the sparkle to sparkle!!! The first picture is his and the second is mine!


Please check out my sister-in-law's site @ The Daily Ink for her card on this challenge!



I just love Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenges!! They really get me thinking!! Thank you Kristina!!! It seams that the only time I get to stamp right now is for one of her challenges. This is Color Inspirations Challenge #34. The colors for this challenge are pale plum, perfect plum, bordering blue, sage shadow, and certainly celery! Love this color combo!

I had so many ideas! Here is one that I came up with! I used the Punch Pals set! The colors of card stock that I used are whisper white, pale plum, perfect plum, and bordering blue. For ink, I used Stazon Black, whisper white craft, perfect plum, pale plum, sage shadow, and certainly celery. I also used the watercolor pencils and a blender pen. For all of the sparkle, I mixed it up between Dazzling Diamonds and Stickles. To make the snowflake brad sparkle, I used the 2-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds. I used the scallop circle punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, and the 3/4 circle punch. I also used dimensionals to make it pop! I added a the bow made of white taffeta ribbon with a mini glue dot to the corner!

So what do you think? Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
