Make Something Cute

That was the challenge presented to those of us that participate in the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog. Now that might sound difficult to some of you, but if you're talking about starting with a Phindy's Place image, you got cute without even trying. The challenge was to narrow your choices down to 3 images just in case you could actually find the time to make 3 cards before the Thursday night challenge deadline.

Before I get to my card, I have to send you to the Phindy's Place Store, because Phindy's got a sale on Christmas images. Buy a dozen Christmas images, that would normally be $36, and you can get them for $30. There are over a dozen Winter Cuties that you just don't want to miss out on, so go check out the sale.

For my first card, I chose this image called Tasty Flakes. I loved this little girl the first time I saw her. If you were ever a child and exposed to snow(living in the Deep south they were few and far between), I'm betting you did the same thing. She's colored with Copics. I used my snowflakes embossing folder to emboss the first layer on the card. I then used some digital paper that was part of a Holiday Package that I bought from Create with TLC. I also had a snowflake Cuttlebug die and cut several out and layered them and then stickled them to give them some sparkle. The snowflake I used for the base of the sentiment was modified from a freebie from a kit called "Snow Much Fun" offered by The sentiment is hand written and then covered with white stickles.
That's my first card. Stick around, I'll be blogging my second challenge card shortly. Thanks for stopping by.
