Warm Winter Wishes




It's Color Throwdown challenge day and Danielle has a wonderful combo of colors for us: Baja Breeze, Old Olive, & Crumb Cake. I went with one of my fave snowman images and colored with Copics then added some crystal coarse glitter by Martha Stewart. The layout is a flipped version of Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. The kraft base was embossed using a 5x7" Cuttlebug snowflake EF. Jump on over to the CTD blog and see what the other talented designers have created! We are welcoming a new member to the DT and I couldn't be happier to give a shout out to Kerri Michaud! In addition to the regular DT, we're thrilled to have Lydia Fiedler join as the Nov/Dec guest designer! Hope you'll join in on the fun!

STAMPS: Warm Winter Wishes by Flourishes
PAPER: Kraft (PTI), Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Neenah Solar White
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Copics (C00, B0000, BG72, R29, YR18, YG95, E53, E55), Piercing tool/template, Marina Mist ribbon by SU, Tiny Sweet Scallop tag die by Verve, Coarse crystal glitter (MS).
