CCMC 180

Good morning, Friends! I hope you are ready for another fabulous and fun Thursday challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This week the challenge is a sketch. Take a look!

And here is what I created!

The sketch is a square card but I made mine a regular card size. That's why I like sketch challenges so much! I started with a card base of Marina Mist and then added a strip of Frostwood Lodge designer paper. On top of this is a piece of Cherry Cobbler that was run through the Big Shot using the Snow Burst embossing folder. Then I stamped the snowman from Snow Much Fun in black StazOn onto a piece of Whisper White that was cut with the 3" circle die. I colored the snowman with Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, and Basic Grey markers. This circle is glued to a piece of Marina Mist that was cut with the scallop circles #2 die and then popped up on the card. Then I stamped the greeting in black StazOn on a strip of Whisper White and flagged one end and tucked it under the circles. The last thing I did was to tie two mini jingle bells together with the Cherry Cobbler baker's twine and glue them to the circle. Cute, huh!!

Please visit the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what all the other designers did with this fun sketch. Then create your own beautiful project and upload it so that we can all see what you come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
