CSAYL Challenge #20 -- Snowy Pair

Good Morning!  I am very happy to announce that I have been asked to join Christmas Stampin' All Year Long's Design Team.  There's a  Christmas Stampin' All Year Long (CSAYL) challenge posted every Friday.  

This  week's CSAYL Challenge #20 is to include 3 of the following elements on your creation:

M- Metal
E - Embossing Folder 
R - Ribbon
R - Rub On
Y - Yellow
C - Chipboard
H - Heat Embossing 
R - Rhinestone
I - Distressing Ink
S - Sticker
T - Twine
M - Markers
A - Acrylic
S - Stickles

Beccy's Place is sponsoring this challenge; and one participant will win 3 images of choice.  For a chance to win link up your creation by June 19 at midnight EST.

For the card above, I used the precious Snowy Pair image by Beccy's Place, and had lots of fun adding the following challenge elements to my creation -- I colored the outline image from the Snowy Pair set with Copic Markers and embossed the panel of white card stock with an Embossing Folder.  Embellishments include Ribbon, Rhinestones, and 2 tiny silver snowflake Stickers.  I also incorporated the color, Yellow, into my design.

In addition to the challenge elements, I added digital paper piecing to the hats and scarfs, and embellished the image with fun flock, flower soft and lots of glitter.  Also the edges of the image panel were sponged with ink and glittered.  And the best part -- I have another Christmas card to add to my stash!

Thanks so very much for stopping by.  Hope you join us for this week's challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.
