Share The Joy

Hi everyone! We were planning to drive ten hours round trip today to visit my husband's grandmother who has been having some medical problems lately but the weather forecast shows we are getting five plus inches of snow today into tomorrow so we ended up staying home. As for my card, the theme is inspired by all the snow falling outside here and the layout was inspired by this week's Deconstructed Sketch. I'm also entering this card in the Moving Along With The Times "Let It Snow" challenge and the Crafty Catz "Snowflakes" challenge.

My card base is Bravo Burgundy layered with Let It Snow patterned paper. The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I paper pierced the edges then layered it on Bravo Burgundy. At the top of the card is Bravo Burgundy die cut on one side using the Large Scallop Border Die layered with a strip of Let It Snow patterned paper. I wrapped Soft Sky Double Stitched Ribbon around it and added a matching bow. To embellish the card I added Star Dust Stickles at the base of the snowman and silver rhinestones along the scallop border.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

what a sweet card this is. I am glad that winter still looks far away where we live; today we had some sun and about 10 degrees (celcius). Regards
