The Paper Variety!!

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to announce my first Paper Variety challenge as part of the Design Team!!

So fun!!! :) :)
Our challenge this week is to create a lo, card or altered item using.....snowflakes! Seeing that today is a snow day in my little town...this wintery challenge is certainly appropriate!

The Paper Variety challenge blog has --------------> PRIZES!!!!

...and this week's prize is fabulous!!! Sponsored by Your Scrapbook Stash.

Check it out....Basic Gray's "Wander" line. You can win an entire kit!!!!! :) :)



{many thanks} For this snowflake challenge, I created a card using a piece of acrylic from Clear Scraps. I scored it just like you would a cs card. I then traced a Maya Road chip snowflake and cut out. Using MM blue paint, I pounced my paintbrush on the inside of the card (and also on the very back of the clear acrylic card). After applying glossy accents to the edges of the snowflake, I added Martha Stewart gold luster glass microbeads. I then added a layered ek punched, heat embossed snowflake w/a Fancy Pants button on top. The office label is inked w/TH vintage photo ink and the sentiment is by Fiskars. Ribbon is from my stash.

Thanks for coming by my blog today!

Hope you get a chance to play at the Paper Variety this week!! We would love to see your creations, so get out your snowy scrappy stuff and have fun!!! Link up your entries before Sunday night for a chance to have your project/blog featured and before Tuesday at noon to be entered to win that awesome BG Wander prize from Your Scrapbook Stash!!!

hugs, patti
