Winter Wishes

Howdy, folks!  I know that I am probably the only one in the world wishing for snow right now, but I am!  Usually by this time here in Kansas, we've had many snow storms.  This year, one snow fall.  Didn't last 3 days.  It's been in the 70's this week.  NOT what I love about winter!  Of course, there are downsides, but I am really wishing for snow, so I've made a card to express my wish...come and take a peek!

This CAS card was super quick to put together.  I punched out some snowflakes using a Martha Stewart punch and DCWV silver glitter paper plus Stampin' Up! Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  I layered these together and added Darice rhinestones to the centers.  I then layered my three snowflakes onto some Stampin' Up! vellum that was backed with more Tempting Turquoise cardstock and added some liquid pearls in Silver.

I then added the punched panel to the card.  I stamped a sentiment from Stampendous under the snowflakes.  I then accented this with some Sakura clear glitter gel pen and a couple Silver liquid pearls.

See?  Super duper simple!  I'm thinking of recreating this using hearts and a different sentiment.  This is such a fun CAS layout and perfect for quick card making!  These would be perfect to make for last 
minute holiday cards, too!  Not that we have that problem in January... ;)

I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~

That's it for me right now!  I have another card to blog, but I might have to wait until tomorrow. ;)  I hope you come and join in the fun of these fabulous challenges!  Thanks for stopping by--I'd love to hear what you think about my card in the comments below!  HUGS and happy stamping, friends!
