PDCC51 with Sarah Anderson

I did something today that I rarely do...combine 2 challenges. This week over at the Play Date Cafe there's a nice, soft palette of colours to work with based on this photograph.

Aside from the beige, the pale blue and minty green make me think of icy things like snowflakes, so I had to do a wintry card. I also combined this challenge with the Mojo Monday sketch #161 for this week which looks like this:

Here is what I came with.

I purchased the new "Northern Flurry" embossing folder from Stampin' Up! and decided to try it out. After I embossed the snowflakes I sponged Basic Gray ink over them and then sanded the ink off the raised parts (it's kind of hard to tell in the photo). I couldn't find a minty coloured green in my Stampin' Up! stash so I used some Bazzill Basics colours I had kicking around, which I have no clue what the colour names are :) Now I have to switch gears and get started on my Hallowe'en cards!

Mint Snowflake Card
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, (Crumb Cake) Stampin' Up!
Punch: EK Success
Stamps: (Many Merry Messages, French Script) Stampin' Up!
Ink: (Basic Gray) Stampin' Up!
Rhinestone Border: Close to My Heart
Snowflake Charm: Making Memories
Ribbon: (Whisper White satin) Stampin' Up!
Embossing Folder: (Northern Flurry) Sizzix

Thanks for stopping by and happy card making!
