Hello!  It’s the first Saturday of the month, which means it’s sketch challenge time at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  Our sketch this week has some fun layers and shapes to play with.

For my card, I decided to use some of the wintry designer paper I’ve been hoarding.  I’m not sure why I’ve been so reluctant to use it.  Maybe it’s because the snowmen are so super cute, I didn’t want to use them up.  I’ve paired that designer paper with a coordinating print and a banner made from a coordinating solid-ish paper.  I sponged the edges of the banner with the same color ink I used to stamp the sentiment.  The snowflake embellishments were die cut from another coordinating solid and brushed with shimmery paint.  In real life, they show up from the print papers better than they do in the photo.  I added a pearl to the center of each snowflake for the finishing touch.
