I Finally made my first Christmas Card of the season!!!   It felt good and I'm ready to make many more.  I started off with a sketch challenge from The Sweet Stop SSS136 sketch this week.
Very simple but was perfect for what I wanted to do.  I had just got a new Fiskars Snowbubble Border and Corner punch and had to use it.  I punched a rectangle piece and then laid it over another piece.  I like how the under layer peaks through.  I also knew I wanted to use these felt snowflakes I had die cut last year and decided to layer them.  I added a glitter snowflake to give it a little punch and tied it all together with a snowflake brad.  Keeping with the theme I added a snowflake ribbon at the bottom.  Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week is TAG IT.  It was a perfect way to add my sentiment to the front of the card.  I don't think there is anything left in the snow flake category... ohhh wait, the snowflake paper I used on the inside.  hahah.. 

I decided to go with the colors that Color Throwdown Challenge had this week for #169.  I love bright and cherry colors and they sure did have them this week.  LOOK:
I also decided to complete the Dutch Dare Card Challenge recipe from this week.  They asked that we use at least  3 of the items in the list:
-pattern papers
-rhinestones, brads, buttons, etc
 I used all but one of their request.

So I hope you are still hanging in here to finally see my card.
More snowflakes on the inside.
 Well on to the next.. I hope you all had a great Sunday.
