Limelight 6 Chicks Thursday Sketch and Product Challenge

Wowza, lots of stuff going on at Limelight Papercrafts! I will start off with our Thursday Sketch and Product Challenge. Here's a blurb straight from the Horse's mouth - which happens to be our lovely Brandi Parshley (hehe)

There's something magical about falling flakes of snow that has the ability to captivate both those young and old. Whether it's your first snowfall or your 50th, you can't help but be mesmerized by the beauty of falling snow. Today we celebrate snow and say "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!" Let's see those snowflakes and snowmen stamps! Mesmerize us with snowy fun flock hills and glistening trees covered in snow. Anything with snow goes in this sketch and product challenge!

Here are the dirty details:

  • Sketch and Product Challenge theme - Let it snow, snowflakes, snowmen, anything with snow.
  • If you happen to have Limelight goods - Awesome! But IT IS NOT A REQUIREMENT. Geesh we all have a lot, so just use what ya got, join the fun, and play along.
  • The winning participant will receive their choice of any type of glitter that is offered at Limelight.
  • Entries are submitted by posting a comment and a link to the card or online gallery on Mandy's blog.
  • All entries must be submitted by Sunday, December 14th by midnight.
  • Uploads to SCS should have the keyword: LLPC0010
Here is my take on the sketch:

I think this card turned out very cute and Brandi, I do like the sketch - it worked out great for me. I cut my strips of cardstock and then ran them through my cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots Folder and the Snowflakes Folder. Then I took the Angel Wings Shimmerz and with a sponge brush covered the entire strip (just the darker blue cardstock). I love how it turned out. I then used my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch and then covered them with the Shimmerz too and finally added a little bit of extra bling with the tiny rhinestones in the center.

For the image, I got out my Stampedous penguin, stamped him with my Memento Black Tuxedo ink and then colored him with my Copics. Not a lot to color so it was super fast. I also added a little more Shimmerz to his scarf. Thanks to my friend Becky who happened to stop by while I was working on this card. She's the one that suggested the Shimmerz.

And finally, I stamped "happy holidays" (Unity's Bitty Christmas Tags) and punched it out with my Word Window punch.
