Dilly Beans and Simply Create Too Challenges

The challenge this week at Dilly Beans is Winter Wonderland and at Simply Create Too, they want us to use more than two layers. This is a card I created for a challenge at my local stamp club. We were given the sketch and the colors and this is what I came up with. I started by punching the large snowflake border punch from Martha Stewart in light blue and then attached the light yellow and white pieces and embossed the whole thing with a snowflake embossing folder. I cut the black delicate snowflakes with a Memory Box die, cut it apart and placed them behind the other pieces. I stamped the skating penguin and paper pieced him, cut and embossed with a circle nestie and added the snowflakes and pearls to complete the card.
