I've Got Chills...

I've got chills...they're multiplying. Yep, I've got that nasty the weather has turned cold, there's too much to do before Christmas, why not add some good old fashioned sickness into the mix feeling. Chills, sneezing, coughing, sniffling, that's what yesterday consisted of. I did pull myself away from the couch long enough to make this card for today's SCS sketch challenge. Even though it feels to me like the bottom right corner is nekked, I faithfully stuck to the sketch. :)

The two snowflake stamps I used are from the Verve Visual Winter Wonder set. I stamped the medium sized snowflake in Versafine Onyx Black and then punched out with a 1 1/4" circle punch. I then stamped the smaller snowflake all around the edges in Basic Gray (stamped off once for a softer look). I then matted these circles on a 1 3/8" black circle. The two back circles are punched from Basic Gray and are stamped with the snowflakes in the same color of ink. I then randomly stamped the medium and small snowflake on white paper using Versafine Onyx Black and Basic Gray stamped off once.

For the sentiment panel I used the Holiday Wishes sentiment from the Verve Visual Wonderful Wishes Remixed set and then stamped around the outer edges with the smaller snowflake. I then sponged lightly around each of the white panels with Soft Sky. The larger white panel is matted on Basic Gray and then Black. The ribbon is attached to the sentiment with a d-ring from the Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware kit. The Soft Sky layer is embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder and then matted on a Basic Gray card base. For the finishing touch, I highlighted the snowflakes with dots of liquid pearls. I just love the look of the liquid pearls - thanks, Lila, for giving me a new obsession! LOL!
