Winter Wishes

Hi and welcome to another Merry Monday challenge.  This week Kathy is our hostess and she wants us to make the sentiment the focal point of our cards.



For my card, I went with a Faux Mother of Pearl background and some ombre ink blending using Lake Shores, Cloudy Sky and Caribbean Blue inks.  


Once I was happy with the background, I die cut it using the pierced rectangle die from Blueprints 20.  I stacked the die cut sentiment 4 deep and adhered that to the inked panel.  A stacked snowflake topped with a rhinestone finished off the card.



Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have some wonderful cards for you to check out.


Products used:

Ink:  Lake Shores, Cloudy Sky, Caribbean Blue (SSS)
Cardstock:  White
Accessories:  Frost White Shimmer Paint, Wintertime Wishes die (Penny Black), Marianne die (SSS), Blueprints 20 (MFT), Rhinestone

Cheers
Karren
