Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #CCMC411

It is Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  Today it is a sketch challenge.   I found this sketch to be well, a challenge!  


I played around with a bunch of other ideas.   I think the double greeting was throwing me until I remembered the Christmas Greetings Thinlits and the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set.  Once I had that in mind everything else fell into place.

This is my second Christmas card of 2016!  Every year I say that I need to start my Christmas cards earlier and every year I am madly trying to get them done at the last minute.   It is June and I already have 2 made, not a huge accomplishment but a start.

I cut the word peace out of Silver Glimmer paper and used slivers of dimensional to adhere to the card.  I wanted it to stand out and emphasize the sentiment.

I used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut the squares of Shimmery White and Dapper Denim card stock.  I embossed the snowflake on Dapper Denim card stock and punched them out using the Snow Flurry punch.  It is hard to see but I mixed White embossing powder with Dazzling Diamond glitter, to give my snowflake a little sparkle.  

Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out what the others on the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge team made.  They are brilliant and made some lovely cards.
