Outlined Occasions for the Festive Friday Challenge!

Dear Everyone

I've been wanting to play along with
Nicole Derendorf’s Festive Friday Challenge for AAAGES! I actually did the Valentine's Day challenge, but I was too late to upload it. However this one....I'm on time! :)

I also saw
this challenge from Utah Divas International and liked the centre banner and thought that I could make that quite "Christmassy" and festive. I was inspired by Madonna Dunn’s card and her use of the Snow Swirled stamp set - I liked how she used it in her background and underneath her sentiment...which led to this card.....

I used the smallest snowflake from the Snow Swirled set and stamped off in Cherry Cobbler so the impression wasn't too dark. The sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration set Outlined Occasions and I filled in the sentiment using Cherry Cobbler and my blender pen. To add to the already fairly 'blingy' card, I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds over the snowflakes and the sentiment panel. :)

Remember there's not long to go before "Sale-A-Bration" is over so you don't have long to get your free stamp sets. Outlined Occasions is very versatile and you only need to spend $100 with me to get this set for FREE! :)

Stamps - Snow Swirled, Outlined Occasions (Sale-A-Bration)
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Stazon
Cardstock - Very Vanilla(smooth & textured), Jolly Holiday DSP (retired), Red Glimmer Paper, Cherry Cobbler
