Snowy Greetings!

It's beginning to look a lot like, Christmas in July! This week, fellow Stamp Simply Challenge designer, Deb Neerman brings us our challenge! Deb wants us to create a Christmas, Kwanzaa, or Hanukkah card. The more festive, the better! I chose to go the snowy route! Pop in a holiday CD, break out the snowflakes, holiday card stock & papers, and holiday charms. What a great way to jump start our holiday card-making!
The darling stamped image on my card is found in the RubberSoul Wordsworth Set, Snowmen Collection and can be purchased at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! I used Copics to color, and stamped the image twice so I could cut another scarf and heart to pop up. After dry embossing my patterned paper, I applied Stickles to my finger and rubbed across the embossed panel. The gorgeous crinkled ribbon is 2" wide with wired edging.
So, for today I bring you Snowy Greetings in the heat of the summer! Thank you, Deb for a great challenge! And we hope you will join us this week! You may play as many times as you want, whenever you want! Be sure to use keyword ssnotime147 if you upload to a public forum! And upload on Sharon's Mr Linky! Thanks so much for stopping by! I love it when you do! Take good care!
