Snow Much Fun with Petals A Plenty

Hello Crafty Peeps! 

I'm playing along with Merry Monday today.  The challenge this week is to use the colours Pumpkin Pie, Marina Mist and Basic Grey.  Not colours I would have picked for a Christmas card but I love the contemporary look.  That's why it's good to try challenges, they stretch our imaginations. 

I've also picked the sketch at CASe This Sketch to follow.

Here's the details of my card.  I've started with a Marina Mist card base.  I then embossed a Whisper White panel with the Petals A Plenty Embossing Folder.  This was matted onto Brushed Silver to give a bit of sparkle.  I stamped my sentiment from For My Family in Pumpkin Pie.  This panel was corner rounded at two sides and attached to a mat of Marina Mist also corner rounded at two sides.  I added a Pumpkin Pie flag tag.  My cheeky snowman from Snow Much Fun was stamped in Basic Grey and coloured using my Blender Pen.  I punched him out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.  Then attached to a mat of Pumpkin Pie which was die cut with the Circles 2 Originals Die.

Another one for my box! 

I had my daughter off school today with a cold.  She thinks she'll be ok for school tomorrow.  I'm starting to sneeze so perhaps Mum wont be so fit tomorrow!! 

Hope you are all well.  Thanks for your visit. x

Ooops nearly forgot to add, thank you very much for my Honourable Mention at Merry Monday last week.  Such a boost! xx
