I see snowflakes......

Hello my stamping friends!!! Can you believe this is the last weekend in November? Oh my goodness, where has time gone. Since today is Saturday and it is time for a new Shining the Light Challenge we the Challenge Team have a fun challenge for you!!

December is just around the corner...and in most places of the USA comes the cold and/or snowflakes. So this week's challenge is to add snowflakes to your creation (this can be on the DP, punched, the image, your ribbon, and etc.)



To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize , a $ 15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, December 2. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.


While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. If you are not using Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, please do not submit your entry more than once or we will have to delete one entry. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by December 2 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC39. When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge.

On to my little project I have to share with you all today!! Since we don't get much snow here in Southern Arizona, I was trying to come up with something fun and yet useful, so I made a card and gift tag set. What I call tags in this project are actually snowflake ornaments that I found at my local Target for only $ 1.00 for 4 of them. To make them more interesting and an actual tag I simply cut circles with my Spellbinders Standard Scalloped Circles and Standard Circles dies and stamped "to: and from:" from the Poinsettia Tag Set on them in silver.




For my card I cut a 5.5"x5.5" base added a layer of Aqua Mist card stock and another layer in white which I embossed with the snow flurries embossing folder by Cuttlebug. I painted this embossed layer with some glitter acrylic paint which I picked up at Joann's embellished it with some gorgeous white lace and hand dyed seam binding in Bermuda Bay and a snowflake garland from Michael's. The tag in the middle of the card is cut from ODBD's new Tag Die and the tag stamp is the Holly Tag Set. To give the edges some dimension I simply rubbed my handy silver ink pad over the edges and viola, ready was my card to go with my little snowflake gift set.

Recipe:
Paper: PTI White, Aqua Mist

Stamps: ODBD Holly Tag Set (Tag), Poinsettia Tag Set (To: and From:) Christmas Verses (Merry Christmas)

Ink: VersaMark, silver embossing powder, silver chalk ink

Accessories: Standard Circles, Standard Scalloped Circles, ODBD Tag die, Cuttlebug embossing folder snow flurries, white cotton lace, hand dyed seam binding in Bermuda Bay, snowflake garland
