Believe ~ PP221 & JAI240

This card is for The Paper Players Challenge #221, a color challenge consisting of Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, and Mossy Meadow.  Also, Just Add Ink #240 calls for adding texture. 

My colors are fudged a slight bit.  I had this Snowflake Thinlits card already cut in Old Olive.....another one of those situations where something is laying on the desk just waiting to be used.  I saw that the santa and sleigh stamp from Holiday Home fit nicely within the snowflake, so that's the direction I went.  I decided I wanted to create a nice little snowy scene.
I used patterned paper from the Trim the Tree paper stack and a DSP pack from a couple seasons ago called Season Of Style.  They both had a white background, so instead of Very Vanilla, I've got Whisper White. 

I added sparkle (because frankly what is a holiday card without some sparkle, right?) in the form of Dazzling Diamonds and Silver glimmer paper.  I punched some stars with the new Confetti Stars punch out of Silver glimmer and glued them onto the sky.  For the snow, I cut an extra snowflake out of the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper and trimmed it up to look like snowbanks. 
This is where the texture comes in for the Just Add Ink challenge.  

For the back of the snowflake, I added a couple of circles and stamped "Believe" from Good Greeting, and the little tree from Holiday Home, then added another punched star.  

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Holiday Home, Good Greetings
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Paper: Old Olive, Season of Style & Trim the Tree DSP, Cherry Cobbler, Silver & Dazzling Diamonds glimmer, White
Accessories: Snowflake Thinlits card die, Star Confetti punch, 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" circle punches

Thanks for taking a peek!
