CASE Study #170 + Curtain Call: Snowflakes + Simon Says

This afternoon my husband and I looked at each other and realized we didn't have anywhere we had to be, or anything we had to do! Woohoo! He headed to the gym with the kids and I headed to the office. I do have about 10 more cards to make, but they are being delivered locally and can be as bulky as I feel like making them.

Only this one was finished before losing the light to photograph this afternoon. My inspiration came from a few challenges: the CASE Study #170 (loving MFW and Cath are the muse this month), Curtain Call Inpsiration Challenge: Sweet Snowflakes and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog: Let it Snow.

A stencil & molding paste create a little snowfall on the aqua panel. The wood snowflake is a leftover from treat bags I made for some crafty friends last week. The top is painted white, smeared with Glossy Accents and then coated with extra coarse glitter.

I love that the edges of the snowflake are a darker brown and adhered the aqua panel to a dark brown card base.

You can see the snowflakes in there natural state here - the sheet music printed glassine bags were a happy find at Michaels!

I am happy to slow down and enjoy the season this week - a little baking, a little crafting and a little visiting are on the agenda for me. What about you?

Thanks for stopping by,
