Brrr...It's Chilly



Well, it is not quite cold here yet, but some chilly temperatures are coming! I made this card for the Ambassador Challenge on the MFT forums (on SCS). The challenge was to use the color blue and at least three buttons. I colored the image with Koh-i-Noor pencils and Goo Gone (still don't have OMS, but Goo Gone works for me). I am also incredibly picky about things matching so in order to get the snowflake and branch to match perfectly, I colored some scrap white CS with my pencils before I punched the shapes. I cannot remember where I got the sketch idea from...isn't that terrible :o(( I need to keep better track of that!
I am pleased with how this came together. Oh, one last tidbit, the white cardstock I used is the new 120 lb. Luxury White from Gina K. Designs...it is soooo nice! It has definitely become my new favorite for white cardstock and is perfect for a card base. It is so thick and can take the weight of added layers of cardstock without buckling.
That is all from here.

Have a wonderful Stampin' Day!
