A Couple of Casuals Plus Colour Q

I really annoyed myself this week - I missed the deadline for CAS-ual Friday - stupid really as we'd had 2 weeks to play and I made the card in time, just didn't get my bum in gear to post it prior to the deadline. Being in the UK, I don't even have Thanksgiving as an excuse!   I've never missed a week of this challenge since it started, so I'm posting my entry Challenge 29 along with the new one for Challenge 30 just to prove I did it :-(

I used the the fantastic colours from this week's Colour Q  as my starting point along with the CASual Friday sketch

This is what I came up with just using one stamp set from There She Goes and a few blue gemstones and some old DCWV DP.  

I stamped the snowflakes in the 3 ink colours on white card and added gems to the centres of the larger ones, stamped the sentiment in the corner and then edged the card with Sahara Sand for definition.  I added some snowflake DP and finished with some more gems and a second sentiment (actually this one is from Waltzingmouse not There She Goes).  This one will be going to my best friend who I've been out with all day today getting the Christmas shopping done and we'll be celebrating in our traditional way (in the pub!) on Christmas Eve so she definately DOES make the season!

So, that's last week's sorted - onto this week - which is a tic-tac-toe challenge

I've opted to take the diagonal line from Scallops to Aqua and this is my creation.

A plain kraft base with a simple scalloped border strip cut using a die from aqua glitter paper.  I stamped a papermania sentiment which has a snowflake pattern but it isn't showing on the photo as I used chalk ink and it's not as crisp as I'd like.  I then decorated the rest of the card with die cut snowflakes using the same aqua glitter card and a few in white for contrast.

Right - better get all the Christmas shopping put away!

Bye for now.
