Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #147

Hello!  I hope you are having a good day!  I still feel pretty yucky - this sure isn't a great time to get sick!  I still have so much to do to get ready for the holidays!  I did get one more Christmas card done thanks to the Timeless Tuesday Challenge over at the Flourishes blog.  Silke had a great sketch for this week's challenge, so I jumped right on it.   I'm really enjoying creating with the wonderful stamps I won last month!

Here is the sketch for the challenge:

And here is my take on the sketch:

I kept my design pretty clean and simple like the sketch.  I started with a card base of GKD Heavy Base Weight White and added some strips of patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas 6x6 pad.  I stamped the snowglobe and scene from Flourishes Joy Is In The Air set with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copics.  I added some Ice Glitter to all the snow to make it sparkle.  The image and mat were cut out with Spellbinders Scallop abnd Classic Circle Nestabilities and the whole thing was popped up on foam tape.  I finished my card with a simple sentiment from Flourishes A Gift For You set.

Oh, and I almost forgot, my card is also for this week's Craft Your Passion Challenge #87 which was "anything goes" but must have glitter.

Many thanks for stopping by!  I hope to see you soon!
