Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge

There's something magical about falling flakes of snow that has the ability to captivate both those young and old. Whether it's your first snowfall or your 50th, you can't help but be mesmerized by the beauty of falling snow. Today we celebrate snow and say "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!" Let's see those snowflakes and snowmen stamps! Mesmerize us with snowy fun flock hills and glistening trees covered in snow. Anything with snow goes in this sketch and product challenge!

Sketch and Product Challenge using anything that reminds you of snow! Snowflakes, snowmen, snow covered trees...anything!
Uploads to SCS should have the keyword: LLPC010
Participants should post a comment and a link to their card on Mandy's blog, all entries must be submitted by Sunday, December 14th, at midnight for a chance to win your choice of glitter!
Here's the sketch:
And my sample. I went with non-traditional snowflake colors. Basically, I wanted to use the Wassail paper, so I made the snowflake go with it, lol!

I cut different strips of Wassail and attached them to a kraft card base. I stamped the snowflake, rotated my stamp and stamped again without reinking, then went over the first snowflake with Angel Wings Shimmerz. I tied a knot and added some red pearls. Can I just say I love all the Kaisercraft pearls and rhinestones? They are fantastic and you get a lot of them in one little package at a great price! I have linked the products used here in the recipe below.

Make sure you check out the amazing designs of the rest of the team!
