Peachy Keen Challenge #13

Here are the rules for this challenge:
  • Make a card

  • Use a stamped image
  • Must include at least 3 snowflakes (can be more)
  • Must include a Greeting

  • Outside of the card:

    Inside of the card:

    I had this great paper with snowflakes on it that looked like it was spray painted blue and purple. Also from the same stack I had a deep purple that matched well. I added stickles to practically everything...the snowflakes and swirls, the borders of the cut portions, the penguin and the stars in the Merry Christmas. I attempted to emboss the snowflake stamp by the Merry Christmas with a clear glittery embossing didn't turn out exactly like I wanted but it looks fine. This is my first card with an opening from the front to the inside so thank goodness for my Cricut Design Studio I was able to line it up perfectly.

    I wish I had some of Peachy Keen's wonderful winter stamps...they are definitely on the Christmas wish list! This is my second challenge from their blog and I am loving it!
