Dashing Through the Snow!

Hi everyone! Time for another fabulous challenge at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps!!!

Yep, it's a color challenge, and I have to say I LOVE this combo! Who knew that brown, white and red would make a terrific Christmas card? Not me!

It's double the fun because Sparkle is hosting sweet Carly Breach's sketch challenge, which goes until December 16th. Carly is my friend Kris Breach's 12 y/o daughter, and she is super talented... just like her mom! She draws up fantastic sketches... a great resource in case you ever find yourself in need of a sketch to get your juices started. (which would be me most of the time!)

Anyhoo, I flipped Carly's sketch on its side for my card featuring Sledding Chloe. Our girl Chloe sure knows how to ride in style!

I created the brown background panel by embossing the star background (by Hero Arts) in white. Reminder: before you heat emboss, use your static remover (e.g., Stampin Up's Embossing Buddy)! I'm going to stick a note on my forehead so I don't forget again next time. lol

Because the image is large, I stitched around it instead of creating a cardstock border. I punched out the snowflake on white cardstock and then covered it with chunky glitter.

Why not come play with us AND Carly this week??? There's a chance to win a stamp in our color challenge and a chance to win the two newest stamps to be released by Sparkle this month if you play in Carly's sketch challenge!!!

For more inspiration, please visit Sparkle and the rest of the design team to see what they've cooked up for the color challenge. You will love them all!




See you again soon!
