As I have been thinking about Christmas over the past few days (see THIS earlier post), I decided to continue that trend with my card. I have to say that The Snowflake Spot (sadly, retired) is one of my absolute favorite sets, EVER! As soon as I decided to participate in this challenge, I KNEW I wanted to use it.
For my color-combo, I consulted my new "creative buddy", the SU! Color Coach. I really don't use a lot of *blue* in any of my creations. But I really like the new Marina Mist color and decided that it was finally time to challenge myself to take it for a spin. Marina Mist + Bashful Blue + Silver = one really gorgeous combo! Although it is tough to see in the photos, my snowflake image is stamped on Shimmery White cardstock, for a little added flair.
The new Glass Glitter from the Holiday Mini Catalog is fabulous! Because I can't just decide on a project and NOT add lots of little details as I put it all together, I went with the glitter border. Glitter is so easy to adhere to any project with a layer of Sticky Strip. It's TOO easy, maybe that's why I couldn't help myself! HaHa!
