Simple Snowflake Sketch

Another lovely sketch from Claire this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog!


This week I turned the sketch to the left, and decided to make a clean and simple card.  I cannot even begin to tell you how difficult it was for me!  How do these CAS designers knock it out of the park every time?



I used Frame-It with a sentiment from Say It Loud-Winter Holiday.  Stamped the snowflake from Sewing Box-Christmas two times and popped the center layer up with a dimensional.  The little heart is also from Sewing Box-Christmas.  I stamped it with SU's Cranberry Crisp ink and then sponged the center with it, too.  Since embellishments were to remain in their respective drawers and baskets, I decided to use approximately 47 dimensionals instead (hee)!...


So which way will you go this week?  Sweet and simple, or luscious layers?  Whatever you choose, be sure to upload your creation HERE by next Friday, October 14th.  Be sure to include at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project in order to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Pssst...you might want to check Claire's blog today!  Last night I think I saw a SNEAK PEEK of something good (really, really, realllllly good) that's coming SOON!

Stamps:  Frame-It, Sewing Box-Christmas, Say It Loud-Winter Holiday, all Waltzingmouse Stamps
