Scrapbook Sister's DT call and Challenge.

There's a design team call going on at Scrapbook Sisters at the moment if you fancy joining the crew for a weekly card challenge, the full details are over at their blog if you fancy taking a look, all you need to do if you're interested is choose some favourites from your already blogged cards that meet the requirements stated.  
Anyway, now let's get to the first challenge of 2012, the theme for this challenge is "Snow" this is one that might help meet a few New years resolutions to make 1 Christmas card a week,it was the resolution that I broke three weeks in last year lol!  For my card I removed a  large circle using a Nestability die from some scrap card the size of my card blank, I then brushed an ink pad just into the edge of the aperture leaving a delicate frame of colour when the mask was removed. (Does that make sense?) I then used some punched snowflakes round part of the circle and used a Sizzix Alphabet to cut letters in the same design paper and white card stock,gluing them together to great a shadowing effect. I added some sparkly appoxy dots to the centres of each flake. In the words of a Meerkat,"Simples"

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
AGCB58, Anything goes,
CAC, Winter colours,
 CCC1, Snow day,
CCC, Resolutions, (Make Christmas cards weekly)
SCCB97, Let it snow,
TT80, Baby it's cold outside,
Paper and Such, Colour challenge,
RCC35,Photo inspiration,
Make it Monday 71, Anything goes,
PCI16, Die cuts and punches.
Thanks for stopping by,
