Let it snow, DTC #86

Happy tuesday everyone! Today our challenge over at digital tuesday was chosen by Anne-Marije, and the theme is

Let it snow.


I love making "snowy" cards. Thanks for the fun challenge Anne-Marije!

Have you gotten any snow yet where you live? We haven't gotten any yet here in the midwest, and yesterday we actually reached 71 degrees (21 celsius). But it was also very windy and still is while I type this.



For my card I used one of my Mo Manning digis. It's been printed out on couture 80lb card stock and then colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. I decided to go with an all white card for this challenge. The 3 panels were run through my big kick with a cuttlebug embossing folder. I embellished with some snowflakes, polka dot ribbon and stickles glitter.

The sketch is from this week's cute card thursday challenge. I also wanted to enter it to this week's Mo's challenge blog with the theme of "use 3 punches". I used the snowflake punch, scallop border punch, and circle punch. Then at totally papercrafts the theme is "snow or snowflakes" and this fits perfectly so I am entering it there too.

This week our sponsor is My Grafico and as always the winner of the challenge gets to choose a set from their store, plus will also get 10% off of an order. If you'd like to play along you just need to make a card or other project using a digital stamp and then follow our them of "let it snow".

Before I go I'd like to wish everyone celebrating Thanksgiving Day this week a

Happy Thanksgiving!!
