Going Grey with Scrap- Creations

Well, it is winter where I live! As I type this (Monday afternoon) it is snowing like crazy and drifting too. I'm also laughing because my little dog is whining and barking like she owns the place 'cuz she wants out of her kennel...I want her to dry off a little first! LOL!

Anyway, today is another edition of Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. Today's challenge is to use blue, white, and silver on our creations. I decided to use a super cute The Stamping Boutique image called Natalie.

Since I didn't really have any patterned paper that would work for this I decided just to emboss it with my snowflake embossing folder, do some layering (the white is Shimmery White) and I thought the icicle edge would be cute, too. I used a sky blue at you Spica pen for glitter as well as a silver fine point painty pen too. As you can tell I also decided to use some Liquid Applique on what I thought the puffy parts of her outfit would be. I love the dimension it gives the card. And, I just remembered that I used a sketch challenge too which is right HERE.

I thought I'd dress up the inside with more shimmery white and snowflakes. Can I just say that I love this card. I can't wait to send it out!

So, hop on over to the DT blogs (as can be found in my sidebar) to check out all the blue, white, and silver goodness then make a card of your own and link it up HERE. This card also works for the Pollycraft Challenge which is feeling blue, the winter theme at Stampin' for the Weekend, use a snowflake at Stampin' B's, snowflakes at 2 Sisters Challenge Blog, snowflakes at Totally Paper Crafts, and snow at Easy Craft Projects.

Have a wonderful day friends!
