Let it snow...

(but not really!) ;)

Hey there!

Are you itchin' for a new Wednesday challenge over at ATS? The theme this week is "Let it Snow" and while I think it makes for some pretty cards I can't say that I truly want to see any more of the white stuff. LOL! But that doesn't mean I didn't think it would be cool to take one of the new Sweet November princesses and turn her into a beautiful ice queen. Ilyse was perfect with her fur lined coat and I think the bottom of her dress looks a bit like a snow drift. I frankensteined bits and pieces from my WeR Merry January card kit to create the perfect background for her royal highness. Then I finished it off with a little whirlwind of pearl snowflakes.

So whether you are still snowed in or enjoying warmer weather why not let the snow fall on a card for the challenge this week? You know by now that every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your project must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

Adios amigos! :)
