CCMC229 Sketch Challenge

It's time for another sketch challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary and this one has heaps of possibilities.



I decided to go Christmass-y (again!) with my card.  My original intention was to have the large panel a masked/sponged panel but after several attempts where I botched it at the last minute, I gave up on that notion!  Instead I went for a variation on the Triple Time Stamping technique, using only two layers.

The final layers are cut with the Large Scallop Edgelit and paper pierced with the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.  The Midnight Muse ribbon is gathered at one spot and finished off with some rhinestones.  Rhinestones are also placed in the center of the big snowflakes.  The sentiment is rounded using the oval punch.

Head on over to Create with Connie & Mary to check out the rest of the design team cards and give the sketch a go - it's a fun sketch!

Thanks for looking.

I just LOVE the way you did this card...the snowflakes with that layer of blue in between. So pretty! All of your extra touches (rhinestones, ribbon, glimmer paper) really make the card! Great working with you on Create!
