Sweet Sunday Snowflakes

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC102. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

My card today is Project Christmas 2011 card #4. I kept this one fairly quick and simple, and if I'd been smart I would have made a couple of these since I didn't get a Christmas card done last week...but apparently I wasn't smart and this is a one-of-a-kind.  :-)

I used my Winter Wonderland set from Taylored Expressions and paired it with Echo Park Wintertime patterned paper. The ink colours I used are Memento rhubard stalk, Memento rich cocoa, sage shadow and blue bayou. I used my Winter Wonderland Snowflake dies to cut out the one snowflake then backed it with a circle of red that I punched with my 1 3/4" circle punch. That way it doesn't get lost on the card. I finished it with some red baker's twine and a button.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to go see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
