52CCT - Pick a Previous ....

.... sketch!  We've reached the end of August and this month has an extra Saturday, so that means it's time for our Pick a Previous challenge here at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.   Julie has opted for a sketch.  You can check our Sketch Archive to see our previous sketches, and remember to tell us which sketch you've used.  Here's my card:

Stamps: Uniko - Stunning Snowflakes, Big & Bold Snow
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Bashful Blue; Memento - London Fog
Dies: Uniko - Snowflakes
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Bashful Blue; Tim Holtz Deco Paper - Silver


I used our sketch from July 2014 but made my card square.  I also made it pretty much one layer.  I stamped the sentiment directly on the card using colours that suggest snow.  I stamped a few snowflakes in blue directly on the card and then added the  die cut the snowflake which I cut from  silver self-adhesive glitter paper.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale blue card and added a greeting and a few more snowflakes to the white panel.  I'm submitting this card to the new challenge at Jingle Belles - JB;15:18 where they have a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, I've gone diagonally through the grid through "Stamping - Die Cut - Glittter".

Love that gorgeous soft blue with grey and silver ... and the inside of the card is as pretty as the front ... so glad you played a game of tic-tac-toe with us at Jingle Belles.

The frosty color scheme and the glittery snowflake are terrific! I like how you've coordinated the inside of the card, too.
