Clean and Simple Snowflake

 I'm trying to get this posted so I can enter this card in the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge for this week before it ends tomorrow morning.  It is such a fun sketch I just had to try it over the weekend and I'm just now getting a chance to edit the photo and get it posted.  It is cold so I think this is fitting right?  Not quite 'snow' cold but cold for Richmond in October!  I've busted out the wool socks and sweaters!

  Here's the sketch.  And remember it's trying to keep the card clean and simple, lots of open space.

How'd I do??

I pulled the color combination right from the Color Coach.  It was kind of winter-y I thought.  I didn't even notice it was the same color scheme as the challenge logo until just now.

I stamped off once before stamping the small splatters in Bermuda Bay, then I stamped the snowflake in Smoky Slate and finally the "Believe" in Stazon right over the top.

I paper pierced around the edge and added a few rhinestones to finish it off.  I think I will be making some more of this design to add to my Christmas card stash.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. This looks so pretty. Thanks for playing along with us in the CAS(E) this sketch! challenge and hope to see you again.

  2. The lacy snowflake is just lovely behind the Believe. The little bit of splatter adds wonderful depth! It's gorgeous!
