Let it Snow

Hi there! Happy Tuesday (Wednesday in Brisbane)!  Hope your week got off to a great start and you're rolling toward the weekend!  Why does time seem to fly this time of year?  There never seems to be enough time to get everything done!  I've given myself until the end of the week to get my Christmas cards in the mail.  I hope I am successful.  Anyway, I am here with the promised mid-challenge inspiration post for Challenge #53 at Elphine House Australia.  For the last challenge of the year, we gave you a choice of two themes and the challenge runs until December 30th, so you still have time to join in!  The themes are "Autumn Leaves" or "Let it Snow".

For my first card, I did "Autumn leaves", so for this one I used  "let it snow" for my theme:

I created two shaped card bases using my Cameo and layered them to look like a snowflake.  The patterned papers are from the K & Co. Elizabeth Brownd Christmas Collection.  The darling image is Christmas Kiss from Elphine House Australia.  I stamped it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added some glitter to the trim on their outfits and Liquid Pearls to the mistletoe.   I cut out the image panel with another cut file for my Cameo by Miss Kate Cuttables.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I added some Stickles to the snow on the letters.  I used two Memory Box Snowflake Corners between the base layers.  Some pretty lace, a tulle blow and a sparkly snowflake from Stampin' Up finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Elphine House blog and check out the wonderful inspiration from Lynda and Lynne!  We hope you will find time to play along before the end of December!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion Challenge #192 (let it snow)
Incy Wincy Challenge (let it snow)
Party Time Tuesdays #150 (Winter wonderland)

Take care and see you soon!
