A Lotta Snow Challenges

I haven't had the time to participate in many challenges the last couple weeks and probably won't have the time for many this week either. Like everyone else I have a ton of things to get done for the holidays. One of the things I wanted to do was make a card for my buddy Phyllis. She is a jewelry maker and has a great appreciation for handcrafted goods so I know she'll enjoy getting this card.
I didn't have a lot of ideas when I sat down to make the card, just that I would use the stamp set "Shine Bright" from the Cat's Pajamas and the dp from Close to My Heart "Aspen". With not much else to work with I decided to see if there were any challenges that I could work on. Since I could work winter and snow into the card I hit the motherload. Here's all the challenges that I found:
1.) The Cat's Pajamas, TCPTUES88 "Let's Make a Wintry Card"
2.) The Sweetest Thing, Sweet Sunday Sketch #48
3.) Crazy for Challenges, C4C15 Theme Snowmen and/or Snowflakes
4.) Allsorts Challenge 31, "Pearls and Swirls"
5.) Our Creative Corner, the holidays are here create a card or project with a holiday theme, Christmas or Hannukah (how many spellings are there for this holiday?)
6.) Stamp Something, theme Winter Wonderland
7.) Paper Cutz Challenge #21, make something using a snowman or snowflake
8.) If the Shoe Fits, Fashionista Friday #14, Let It Snow
The paper I chose has snowflakes on it but because it's tan they are hard to see. I used a gelly roll pen to highlight the snowflakes and draw some swirls but it's very difficult to see in the picture. The silver snowflakes are a ribbon and the tan ones are the scraps from the EK Success border punch used on the DCWV cs. The tiny blue pearls in the centers of the snowflakes are from Recollections. The image and sentiment were stamped with SU Bordering Blue and embossed with SU clear powder.
Thanks for stopping by during this very busy season.
