Good morning!

The challenge over at Pause Dream Enjoy this week is "Snow!"  Unfortunately I wasn't able to get my project uploaded in time for the Design Team post, but I still wanted to share it with you and let you know about this week's challenge :)

First, here's my card:

I made an A2 size card.  The first layer was made cutting an image from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  It can be found on page 24, A4, < Square6 > cut at 4 1/4" x 4 3/4" using the Fit to Length key.

I have to warn you right now that I used a lot of retired product on this card.  For the last 2 years, I have made the commitment to "shop in my craft room" first before going out and buying anything new for a project.  So, I have used a number of products that are no longer available.  I hope that I will inspire you to do the same!  The little deer on the front of the card is an image from the Bundled Buddies stamp set.  I colored him with Chocolate, Crystal Blue, Vanilla Cream, and Spring Iris markers and then cut him out and popped him up with some 3D foam tape.

The sentiments on the inside and outside of the card came from the "Snow Days" stamp set and were stamped with Chocolate ink.  The trees on the front of the card came from that same stamp set.  I stamped the trees across the front of the card using Crystal Blue ink.  I then used my Bonding Memories Glue Pen to go over the tree and branches and then added Prisma Glitter to make them "shiny".
