52CCT May Sketch Challenge

I'm so excited to have been invited to be GDT at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown
for the month of May. The design team there provides great inspiration each week to get
all your Christmas cards done well before the the holiday rush hits.  The first challenge
of each month is a sketch challenge.

Here's what you have to work with…

and here's what I came up with.

I have quite a stash of Dazzles stickers from Hot Off the Press so I decided to put some to
use. I love dazzles stickers because you can do so much with them. You can place them on
plain card stock and color them in, like I did, or you can back them with colored card stock
and cut around them. I used smooch inks for the coloring and added some glitter to the
areas of the stickers I left white. I used Sizzix framelits dies for the frame. Made a banner
and added a dazzles border and dazzles sentiment. The white snowflakes were punched
and glittered. And I finished up with some gems on the snowflakes. Hope you get some
inspiration and link your own creation up at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown!
Thanks for taking a look!

I'm also linking this to the Sparkles Christmas Challenge where the theme is "baby it's
cold outside".
