Merry & Bright

Well, it's certainly "bright" today.  About 6" of snow fell through the night and into this morning.  OK, that's enough for this winter...I wish...
This snowman card is going into my Christmas card stash.  But, he'll soon be out the door.  I'll start addressing my Christmas cards this afternoon ; o)

This card is going into the Card Patterns Sketch 93.  You can click on the link to see the inspiration that the guest designer and crew provided us with.  Here is this weeks sketch:
And, here is my interpretation:
I'm including 2 more pics, that will hopefully show a little more of the sparkle on this card.

My friend Kris gave me this sheet of patterned paper last Saturday.  The snowflakes have SO much sparkle (so pretty!), but it was difficult to capture that in these photos.
I used a MS border punch on my layer of brushed silver cs.  I think this border ties in nicely with the shapes in the felt snowflake embellishment, don't you?
This was such a fun card to make; I love the colors of navy, silver and white for a Christmas card.

Thanks so much for stopping in!  Please leave a comment; I look forward to reading them!
