Just Us Girls Challenge - Winter

Dear Ones~
I have the honor and great privilege of being Guest Designer over at the Just Us Girls Challenge Blog for the month of January. These are once a week challenges with a different theme each week. Always fun to participate! All the designers are over-the-top talented, which makes for great inspiration.

Here is the challenge for the first week of the new year:


The theme is WINTER. How timely, right? There are so many different possibilities with this theme. Here is the card I came up with:
Those flourishes remind me of snow swirling around in a gust wind. The pale blue color might be reminiscent of ice covering a lake in winter, and I love using the snowflake dies with glitter paper, like the sparkle of snow on a sunny winter day.

Here are the ingredients:
Gina K Designs Pure Luxury White Card Stock
Martha Stewart Create Pastel Paper Pad
Recollections Christmas Glitter Pad
Cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder
Impression Obsession Snowflake Dies
Cheery Lynn Mini Flourish Die
Gina K Designs Let It Snow Stamp Set

Thanks for stopping by. And do consider participating in these fun and easy challenges. Go visit the blog for more info:
