Sparkle and Shine Challenge 21

Here's the inspiration photo for Sparkle and Shine's challenge 21.  There are new sponsors this year, and the one for this challenge is Create a Smile!   I don't have any of their stamp sets yet, but my daughter has a few and they are awesome! (I borrowed hers for this challenge and will definitely need to get some for myself)                                


I have a few winter birthday cards to make, so I decided to use this as an opportunity to get one of them done.  Here's my take on the photo:
Since it is winter, instead of balloons I used snowflakes.  Supplies are:
  • Create a Smile Smiling Snowflakes stamp set  
  • Create a Smile's 29 again stamp set for the sentiment
  • Simon Says Stamp inks:  wisteria, hot mama, blue jay
  • Martha Steward sterling embossing powder: sentiment and stripes on card base
  • Green Frog Tape to tape of sides of card base to make embossed stripes
  • Pretty Pink Posh's silver star sequins
  • Foam tape to pop up snowflake stamped card top
Thanks for taking a look, and be sure to check out all the wonderful cards from the design team and entrants!
