Sassy Christmas Challenge #5 - Let It Snow



Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.... Well, that's the theme of the new Sassy Studio Designs Sassy Christmas Challenge at least. In reality, it is August and 90 degrees outside! Yes, I made a Christmas card this morning and then took my small man to my brother's so we could go swimming in his pool. Perfectly normal! lol And it's New England! The fluffy stuff will be flying soon enough! So now is the perfect time to start working on those holiday cards. Challenge #5 is easy - all you have to do is use a Sassy Studio Designs image and have snow and/or snowflakes somewhere on your creation. I opted to use both snow and snowflakes. One of my designer papers has snowflakes on it. I made a layered snowflake with two Martha Stewart punches and a snowflake brad. I used those same snowflake brads along the bottom of my card. AND I used something called a Snow Writer to enhance the falling snow and the pile under her feet. Before it dried I simply sprinkled some glitter on it for added effect. You can't really tell from my picture, but it is 3-dimensional and quite sparkly!

My image is called First Snow from Sassy Studio Designs. She is one I've used before, but I think she's so fun to color I just had to print her out and put markers to her again! The sketch is #12 from the deconstructed sketch. I am so glad I found this blog because Jen has FABULOUS layouts over there! If you haven't played along there before, you'll want to go check out her blog, deconstructing jen. Because not only are her sketches cool....Wait until you see her cards!

You have all month to play along for Sassy Christmas Challenge #5. Simply link your project up here on the SSD blog, using the inlinkz tool, by August 31st to be eligible to win 2 Sassy Studio Designs digital images of your choice.
