GGSC94: First Snow

Today over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations is First Snow.  I had a lot of fun with this challenge on my days off last week, I was on a creating frenzy.

I had so much fun, I have 2 cards to share to you, both similar layouts and colors.

This first card is based off a sketch from Skipping Stones Designs and I also used one of the wonderful tutorials from Katie Gehring.  I adore this pleating ribbon and how it turned out although it did take me just a little while to complete.

The image I used is a digital image from Torico.  I added some platinum sparkly fluff to the snowman's hat.  This color scheme was based off the Playdate Cafe Challenge #110 but then realized I left one of the colors off so I created a 2nd card with all the correct colors.

I love how this card turned out, I used these awesome new supplies (to me) that I received from Cindy Lyles at StarLit Studio.  I won them from participating in the Hope You can Cling to Challenges over on SCS.  These are the Fancy Tags 2 and Want2Scrap Nestabling.  

I've been working with the Our Craft Lounge images and love this little seahorse from Sea-Sons Greetings and it fit perfectly in the frame of the Fancy Tags.

The papers I seem to be turning to a lot these days for all my holiday cards is from Echo Park Season's Greeting collection which Pumpkin Spice Shop carries and is holding a design team call now.  They carry the 6 x 6 paper packs that I love to work with when making cards.
