Time Out DT #45 Mid Challenge Reminder, AAA Cards #53, Addicted to CAS #77, SSS Wednesday 2/12, Simply Create Too #99, Uniko #27

Hello … bonjour!  We’re mid way through our delicious challenge over at Time Out, where this fortnight we’re ‘Inspired By Words’ … our words are ‘snowflakes are winter’s butterflies’.  This week I’ve gone all cool and frosty …

Time Out DT 45R,Time OutThe snowflake panel is one I embossed at the Lake House last year … think it’s Bev‘s (thanks my friend!) … maybe it’s from Stampin Up … not sure of either!   It’s trimmed down, stamped with a sentiment from Penny Black and a SSS Christmas star, I added some gems to the centres and adhered the panel to the card base that’d been sponged with silver ink round the edges … it’s rather shimmery and sparkly IRL!

How would you like to play along with us?  You can use any or all of the words in our phrase … just let your imagination wander.  There’s plenty of inspiration over at the Time Out blog … from our talented Guest Designer, Ashwini, and from our own wonderful Design Team … definitely worth checking out!  Hope to see you in the gallery!

I’m joining in with …

    Is this ever subtle and gorgeous!! Love this to bits, Anita! So glad that you join the fun over Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Let it Snow” Challenge!

    What a gorgeous embossed image! The subtle sparkle, and wonderful sentiment give just the right amount of Christmas decoration, Anita … and of course that ‘star of wonder’ … so perfect!

    Had to go check the stash to see if indeed it was mine, and from SU. You were correct on both counts dear friend. What a memory!! What a beautiful card, too! The silver base highlights your focal panel perfectly! LOVE the Christ Star tucked at the bottom of the snowflakes, and the red (heart) bling in its center. Lovely, lovely Christmas card!!! Miss you every day….xoxo

    Your embossed snowflakes are just beautiful, Anita! I love how you placed the Christmas Star and sentiment, too! Such a lovely color palette and stunning card!

  5. Cornelia (fun stamping)

    So pretty and elegant. I like the grey sentiment, contributes to the elegance, rather than the usual bold black that I normally use.

    This is lovely Anita – lots of white and just a hint of silver. Love the sentiment as well.

    This is stunning, Anita! It has everything a Christmas card should have and it’s a perfectly executed design! I love it! And I miss you! Hope your holiday preps are going well. I’m so far behind that I just decided today not to stress about the fact that some folks will be getting my cards after Christmas! Hugs, Darnell

    Absolutely stunning! I love the embossed snowflakes, the touch of bling and the sweet verse. Thanks so much for playing along with our Christmas challenge at Uniko this month!

    Love this white CAS so much. The embossing looks great with the sparkle of the tiny rhinestone center embellishments you’ve added – just the right touch of some bling. Also looks very pretty against the gleam of the silvery background c/s. TFS & have a great weekend.

    This embossed white with the silver is so peaceful and gorgeous , Anita! Just enough bling to make it shine, well done again !

  13. Jill Vickers

    Just gorgeous Anita – I just love the combination of white and silver – and that embossing is beautiful – especially accented with that little bit of sparkle! Thanks for linking up at AAA too! Jill

  14. kimheggins

    Anita…I am simply speechless! This is just so beautiful and so elegant too! I love all that white and all the sparkle. Hope you are doing well and miss you lots!

  15. Lindsey

    So beautiful, Anita! I love those embossed snowflakes. And the white and silver is such a perfect pair for the mood of this card. I love the shimmer of the silver and can image just how stunning it is IRL as I recently shimmered up a snowflake of mine in the same way. 🙂

  16. Beverley

    Love the embossed snowflakes, so much detail yet with the white on white with hint of silver & red it still has CAS about it! Thanks so much for joining in on the Uniko Challenge & my apologies for stopping by so late to comment. Hugs Bev x
