Fussy and Fancy Challenge DT--Show Us Some Snow!

Good morning and happy Friday! Today over at Fussy and Fancy Friday, the challenge is to make a project featuring Snow. We don't have any here in Northeast Arkansas at the moment, but I think conditions are favorable! Wouldn't it be great to have a snowy Christmas?!

My card today uses one of the Tildas from last year's Christmas collection and some My Mind's Eye paper I picked up the last time I was in little rock. The pearly snowflakes are actually buttons that were in the Christmas craft section at good ole Hobby Lobby. I just cut the shanks off of the backs with my nail clippers. I made the beaded hat pin, again with some really cool glass beads from Hobby Lobby. The pin is a corsage pin from their floral department. I colored Tilda with Copics--I didn't hold out the colors, but I colored her jacket with R30's and the flowers with the R20's.

I got the sketch and the idea to decorate the inside and the back from Lena Katrine, a cardmaker from Norway whose work I really admire. Lena Katrine decorates the inside and back of her cards in a similar theme as the front. I think it really makes a nicely put-together look for a special card. So, I tried her method on this card today.

Thank you for taking a look at my project today! Don't forget to enter our challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Friday! I'd love to see what you make from our snow challenge! And be sure to join us on December 31st for a ton of first anniversary fun! Have fun and happy stampin'! Lisa
