Color Create does Sketch Saturday....

As you know I am not a fan of color challenges. Only because I have a hard time with them. I usually pick out my paper or image and go from there. But when I seen the gorgeous color combo picked out by Kim over at Color Create I had to do it. Instantly I thought winter! (Silly huh in this beautiful warm weather LOL) But when I finally got these adorable stamps I knew what I wanted to do. Then I looked at the sketch for Sketch Saturday and my card was born! Nothing like last minute.... I just had to tilt the sketch on its side to achieve the look I needed. I had fun making this one and it came together really easy once I started! I love snowflakes so I am pleased with the way it came out!! I colored it in mostly with twinkling h2o's and added alot of glitter to my snowflakes.

Paper: Kaiser and Co., Kraft paper
Inks: distress inks, twinkling h2o's
Accessories: snowflakes ~ cuttlebug, Martha Stewart punch, circle stamp ~ Cats Life Press, button and twine ~ stash


Well thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are all having a fabulous day!! If you are also having a nice extended week-end ~ ENJOY IT! The weather here is absolutely perfect! (Finally)
