Paper PRetties Wednesday Challenge and a Blog Hop!

It's Wednesday! That means it is time for another funWednesday Prettie Challenge and blog hop! This week our challenge comes from the incredibly talented Prettie Girl Frances!

Deadline: 6pm EST Tuedsay, January 12th.
Prize: $15.00 coupon to the Paper Pretties Boutique


Here is the sketch:

Frances had a tall card (not A2) in mind for this sketch but because my brain is apparently still on vacation and because I haven't been feeling well and am just not on the ball, I made mine A2 size. I'm sure my card would have been much cuter had I actually followed directions.

For my card I used 2 of the fun new winter sets Snowy Snuggles and Frosty. Both of these sets are super cute and great for Christmas or just general winter cards!
The large blue snowflake was not exactly in my original plan but just as I was finishing up gluing my card together I somehow smudged black ink from my fingers onto my card. In an effort to salvage it (since it was completely done) I added the felt snowflake.
Supplies used: Frosty and Snowy Snuggles sets from Paper Pretties, SU cardstock, Copic markers, Sparkly Fluff, MAMBI self adhesive rhinestones, SU scalloped edge punch, Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder, nestibilites, Hero Arts felt snowflake.

If you are just starting at my blog, head on over to Christie's blog to start from the beginning. You definitely won't want to miss any of the stops! If you are following the hop, the next stop after my blog is the blog of Prettie Girl Wendy Bond!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a terrific day!
