Sweet Sunday Snow Day

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC151.

There are plenty of fun, seasonal images I could have chosen to use, but I decided to use the wintery Pure Innocence Snow Day set from MFT, and create card #6 for Project Christmas 2012. I don't know why, but I really enjoy using the Sweet Sunday Sketches for my Christmas cards throughout the year.
Pin It

I went totally girly with a pink and red colour combination. I added some pink rhinestones for her buttons and white liquid appliqué for the fur trim and pompoms.

The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Be Merry 6x6 paper pad and I cut out a cream strip with my crown border Die-namics for a decorative edge. The first place award ribbon Die-namics was perfect for the sentiment, as always, but what can I say? When something is perfect like that I use it all the time! I used the two larger sizes of snowflakes from the let it snowflake Die-namics and the bottom one is cut from strawberry ice cream felt.

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