Let's Talk Snow

Hey kids!  Taking a break from getting my Christmas cards ready to go so I could make a card for today.  The picture isn't great but I have to leave in 10 minutes so here it is anyway:


Pretty simple design but I like it.  The white is actually Shimmery White cardstock, as always it's hard to capture in a photo.  I started with the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge:


They're an SUO challenge, so I must point out that the silver cord *is* SU!, albeit retired.  I still have quite a lot of the metallic cord from several years ago, the year that it wasn't elastic.  I can't even remember if there's metallic cord in this year's holiday catalog.

Anyway, I paired the colors with this week's Global Design Project sketch:


This would have come together really, really fast if I hadn't had to contend with my little Sadie girl dog laying down RIGHT BEHIND my chair so I couldn't move to get to the paper trimmer (or anything else).  But she's just so cute I didn't make her move.

Anyway, I've got to get out the door.  Cheers, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Flurry of Wishes, Crazy About You
Ink:  Soft Sky, Sweet Sugarplum
Paper:  Soft Sky, Sweet Sugarplum, Shimmery White
Accessories:  Tags & Labels Framelits, 1/8" hole punch, retired silver cord

Christy, I know that because you used the shimmery white cardstock that this card is lovely in real life. I love how you combined the challenges to create such a beautiful card. Thanks for playing along this week at Global Design Project.
