PINspired Colour Challenge and a Card Sketch!

Howdy everyone!  Time for another fabulous card sketch! For December, we'll be sharing not only a card sketch... it will be a card sketch PLUS a PINinspired Colour Challenge!!!!  So this month you'll have a sketch and a colour challenge every Wednesday!

This week's fabulous card sketch was designed by Kimberly Figures.

Sketch #42

Here's my card using Kimberly's sketch and our first PINspired Colour Challenge..

 Merry Christmas
For my card today, I used Flourishes "Color Made Easy" cardstock from the Crocus Collection.  I used the "Snow Day" stamp collection to add a "stitched sweater" pattern to my punched edge Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock.  My greeting is from the "Naturally Merry" stamp collection.

To achieve my silver snowflakes, I first die cut the 2 layers of the Spellbinder's snowflake shapes and then inked them up with Versamark ink and sprinkled silver embossing powder over top.  I carefully melted the powder using my heat tool.  I used some pretty silver jewel brads to hold my 2 layers together.

Check out our prize for this month...
