1 Card 2 Challenges

This card I made for two challenges. The first is the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #24. The challenge was to create a card using the following sketch.


The other challenge was the All Sorts Challenge week 19. The challenge was to create a project using snowflakes. When I saw this challenge I knew that I just had to do it because like Kirsten, I too love snowflakes. And of course in combining these two challenges I was able to get one more Christmas card created. Since I have been participating in these challenges I have found myself making alot of Christmas cards and usually I'm trying to rush at the last minute to get them all done to send out.

So here's my finished card:

The stamp that I used is a Studio G stamp. The paper is from the Die Cuts With a View spring mat stack and the winter mat stack. I punched the snowflakes out of white cardstock and added blue gems to finish off the look.
