Here is the Sketch Saturday sketch:
And here is the Color Throwdown swatch:
Here is my card for both challenges:
I started with a card base of SU Pool Party and layered with patterned papers from the Basic Grey Mistletoe & Pears and Eskimo Kisses collections. I merged these two darling Mo Manning images called Kai in the Snow and Snowman. They can be found in Mo's store here. I just love the expression of joy on Kai's face in this one! I printed the merged image and colored it with Copics. I added some Snow Glitter to the pom poms on both hats and some Polar White Flower Soft for the falling snow and snow on the ground. I wove some pink gingham ribbon through the fancy border cut with a Spellbinders Parisian Accents die and added a triple-loop bow. The corner element is also from Parisian Accents. A few adhesive pearls on the diecuts finished my card.
Thanks for coming by again! I really appreciate it! Enjoy the rest of your day and the weekend!
