Polka Dots, Snowflakes & Stripes Oh My!!

It's Thursday and time for our first challenge at 'Tis the Season! If you're a fan of creating Christmas cards throughout the year, this is the challenge for you. We are Bi-Weekly and will be rotating between Sketches & Color Challenges. Each challenge will have an Optional Trimming you can add.

My card started out as several then ended up with Snowflakes after many other images on the main panel didn't feel It's a bit crazy looking Ha Ha. 

I started with a piece of DSP from the Season of Style Designer Series Pack in the Holiday Mini Catalog. The card base is Baked Brown Sugar and then I used the same color for the image panel where I stamped the Snowflakes from Snowflake Soiree in Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive & Chocolate Chip.

I stamped the Merry Christmas from More Merry Messages in Chocolate Chip on a piece of Whisper White and then I stamped the Flag from Hearst a Flutter in Old Olive and cut it out and adhered under the Sentiment piece. 

The ribbon is a piece of Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Each panel is popped up with Dimensionals for some height. 

Head over to the 'Tis the Season Challenge Blog and see what the other Design Team members created with the Sketch.. The challenge is open until Tuesday Oct.14th at 12pm EST. 

Thanks for Stopping by!
