SSSC40 Ready, Set Snow!

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

It is that time of the week, my favorite, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!!

Here is our sketch for this week:

I was a bit freaked out when I saw it!! I went searching through my stamps to see what I had that would work with those small circles. I found my "Snow Flurries" set, it is retired, but knew when I saw it what I wanted to do.

I stamped several of the snow images onto scrap night of navy and bashful blue with versmark and then embossed with white embossing powder. I used my 3/4 inch and 1 inch circle punches for these. Then I went looking for a sentiment and found this one in the "Best Wishes and More" set. I also used the large snowflake stamp from this set for my BG.

I have to apologize for my not so crisp sentiment, I stamped and embossed it several times, I was running out of night of navy cardstock, and just couldn't get it much better than this. My daughter says it looks fine, she said it looks like it is snowing around the sentiment. So lets just go with that ok? LOL!!!!

So why not join us with this sketch, we would love to see what you come up with.
