This card is for the special challenges I do every week with a group of friends here at SCS. This week we had to make our cards using items that were sent to us. These items were:
* the polka dot background paper
* winter charm
* snowflake die cut with white brad (centre of dancing snowflake)
* sheer polka dot ribbon
Other than that we could use anything else we wanted. There was also a second part to this challenge ..... which was that everyone had to send their completed snow cards to ME!!!!!!!! ....... because I have never seen snow ...... now how cool is that!!!!!! I already have one of the cards sitting here and can't wait to see the other 6 in real life!
It also stated I had to send mine to someone who hadn't seen snow ...... well everyone I asked has seen snow so we have now changed this and I will be posting mine off to one of the other challengers ...... it seems fair ..... I have decided who I am sending it to but I am not telling ;)
When I first found out about this challenge I wasn't sure what I would do but after some thought I remembered about this "Winter Sprite" stamp by Stampendous ........ I can't remember buying this so I think someone must have given it to me sometime ..... it seemed a great opportunity to finally use it! When I first started making this card I almost had a disaster already cause I cut the background paper square and then discovered I needed it longer ....... fortunately the leftover piece was a fraction longer so it wasn't a major disaster ....... however I would have liked the card to be a fraction longer ago but oh well ..... I am happy with how it turned out.
