Merry Monday #68

Time for a new sketch challenge at Merry Monday!  I decided to cool things off with a few snowflakes!  Here is the original sketch design for you to create with-

I added a little bling to my pattern paper with rhinestone sparkles.  Super quick way to add interest to the card, while keeping it mailing friendly.

I added a few layers to the inside as well.  Those little scraps of pattern paper come in handy for the inside of cards!

Clearly Sentimental About Christmas Stamp Set-MFT
Winter Fun Papers by Carta Bella
