Simply Winter

This card was really quick and easy.  That rarely happens for me.  It took longer to get a good picture than to make the card!


And this simple little card works into 5 challenges!  That's reason for a happy dance!

CAS Colours & Sketches #7.  It's a fairly new challenge and I'm so happy to be able to play this week.  Here's the wonderful sketch they provided.


CASology  which is about to shut the door so I'd better hurry.


Addicted to CAS where there'll be a prize winner


Pixie's Crafty Snippets-Week 55 who is also offering a prize.

My embossed piece and the snowflake strip were both out of my snippet box.  Funny how I keep using the snippets, but the box doesn't get any lighter.

Ways to Use it at SCS is asking for SNOWFLAKES this week.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Paper:  Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Other: Kars Snowflake Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Snowflake Punch (recollections), Basic Rhinestones

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and finding some time to stamp.  Thanks for stopping by to visit.

Enjoy!

Simple, but oh-so creative! Love your blue and white colors ... and perfect for a wintery card with snowflakes. Love the rhinestone centers ... and the added detail of sponging white on the edges of the card. Fabulous! Thanks for joining us at Addicted to CAS, Bonnie! Loll xx

Wonderful card - I love the use of negative space for the snowflakes, and the texture on the white panel is perfect! Thanks for joining us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Snap! I don't seem to have made much of an impact on the amount of snippets gathering in the box either.

Your card is lovely - I do like the simplicity of the layout and the blue is striking against the white.
