Hey y'all! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We have another fun challenge for you at My Craft Spot. This is challenge #41 and is called 'Snow Much Fun.' This week we are creating projects centered around snow/snowmen! If you would like to check out my fellow DT's fabulous projects and get info on entering the challenge, go HERE. Of course, there is a prize up for grabs! Woot woot!
For my DT project this week I decided to go with a card. When I think of snow/snowmen, the first thought that comes to my mind is all of the beautiful colors. I love when the rays of sunlight hit the snow and you see that rainbow of colors. For me, I always noticed the cool blues, creams, silvers, and a touch of brown. I know the snow is not brown, but I always see the branches sticking out of the snow. So when I sat down to create my project, these are the colors I kept in mind. I knew I wanted to add lots of sparkle to the card too to mimic the way the snow sparkles. To create my shimmering effect, I used rhinestones and some trim I found in the floral department that sparkles. Here is my card...

This card has a lot of dimension to it. I think I will give it out by hand. Katie Scarlett, my Yorkie, has her spay surgery today. This card is a 'thank you' card so I thought I may give it to the staff at our vet to thank them for taking care of our baby.
I tied twine on my chipboard button.
Here is the inside of my card. I used a stamp from the 'Sweet Sentiments 1' set at My Craft Spot.
I hope you have enjoyed this card and that you'll hop on over to My Craft Spot to join us for the challenge! See you there!
