when the snow comes to cover the ground...
Welcome to the weekend friends... isn't it wonderful?
It is for me because I have the day off this week, yeah! I'm sure I'll have plenty to keep me busy and then tonight I'm going out to a Christmas dinner with my work peeps... fun, fun, fun!
So I made my card today with two challenges in mind... the Flutter By winter challenge and the All That Scraps snowflakes challenge. And I was really proud of myself, for once again getting a two-fer out of a card. But then I noticed that the ATS challenge has changed up its rules a bit and doesn't let you combine without being disqualified. Oops! Oh well, I really don't think I'm eligible to win anyway to I'm still entering this card into both. :)
So let's see what all I've got going on here... well, I used the adorable Swiss Pixie Gretel from CC Designs and the only altering I did was add a couple stripes to her legs so I could color in funky tights that matched the striped paper. Oh and I also heat embossed the flourishes on the striped paper with clear Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel for a subtle 'blowing wind' effect. The rows of quirky little trees were hand cut from a sheet of pattern paper. Nothing mind blowing or super inventive technique wise but this card just makes me smile and isn't that what we all hope our cards do?
