Pollycraft Challenge #25 ~ Five "S" words

Happy Monday Morning!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today's card was made for the Pollycraft Challenge. The challenge was to try to use at least 2 of the 5 "S" words. Stripes, Spots, Snowflakes, Swirls, and my favorite Sparkle, on your creation. if you use all 5 you get a free single image download of your choice. How cool is that. For my card i used one of the Cherry Kisses images and used my oval nestabilities to mat her. i covered the snowballs in prisma glitter for lots of SPARKLE. i used my creative basics Jingle collection pattern paper from Ctmh, that has SNOWFLAKES on it, i stamped some snowflakes in the background of my image and added a sparkly snowflake in the corner of my card. for my large snowflake punch i used some cool new paper from ATS , Cosmo Glitter Paper, it gives out lots of shimmer. My pattern paper also has spots around the snowflakes and just for good measure i added a small basic grey brad in the middl
e of my punched snowflake with SPOTS. I also used my cuttlebug to make a mat of SWIRLS using my D'vine swirls embossing folder. The STRIPES of coarse is my other piece of matted pattern paper. So there you have it my creation using all
5 "S" words. I know it's only fall and i'm posting winter cards ugh!, i'm just never happy. lol. I will be posting more fall cards very soon i'm hoping. Well that's it for today i thank you for stopping by. Have a Wonderful Day!! :0)
