I have officially switched gears from fall to winter! Brrrr!!! (Although, we had snow in October and haven’t seen any since!) Someone commented to me a while back that we hadn’t done a “follow the list” type of LSC for a while, so I decided to fix that!
Here’s what I had in mind:
1. The only image stamps/embossing you may use are snowflakes. Yup! Only snowflakes (or something that looks like falling snow). No snowmen, snowwomen or anything, just snowflakes! The same goes for patterned paper . . . it must be snowflakes!! (Get the idea?)
2. Your creation must be monochromatic.
3. You need to add some sort of “bling” or sparkle to your card. Stickles, rhinestones, shimmery paper or ribbon . . . make it sparkly!!
4. Last, but certainly not least . . . sentiments may be ONE WORD only!
How’s that for a list??
Once again, Amelia (Wendybell’sGirl) pitched in with a sample for us. Whatever would I do without her??

I stayed up late to do the challenge, but I think I must be tired. The entire time I was working with my card I kept reminding myself that I was only going to stamp the 'Greetings' part of the sentiment. But I got so busy thinking about placement I forgot and inked the whole thing. Sorry! But with the script font it looks like one word----truly!

Hmmm, all my snowflake stamps are pretty small - but I will see what I can do. Come to think of it, I did a view-master card last year that qualifies on most counts, so I've got to be able to rise to this fun challenge.
I tried to capture the layers in my photo so my irridecent ice isn't showing up so good. I stamped the image 4 times and cut out the main snowflake getting gradually smaller w/ each layer. The layered snowflake is very sparkly with dazzling diamonds as is the organdy ribbon.
Thanks for a challenge.......I haven't played in a while!!!

OH, Wendy! I totally forgot the monochromanic part - I have to go to Social Security today and have no time to do another card - please know I am OLD and, therefore, cannot follow directions!!! I put so much time in this card that I hope you will be gracious and forgive - please don't send the challenge police! I also used up my sticker snowflakes! I hereby promise to read directions better in the future and to read them TWICE!
Ok - so the card I uploaded last night fits this challenge almost perfectly.
Notice I said almost - mine has a 2 word sentiment instead of one.
But it's like I knew this challenge was coming, so hope you don't mind that I added it to this challenge.
I will try and do another one tonight after work, shopping, etc etc.
