3rd non-winning MIFYH contest entry

Here's #3 of my non-winning entries I submitted to the Make It From Your Heart contest.
This one was for the October SOTM category.

I like to use non-traditional papers in less obvious ways to show how versatile they are, so I made this Christmas card with B&Ts from the Sonoma paper pack.

When you look at Sonoma, it doesn't really scream Christmas... lol
but look how pretty it is!




The snowflakes are stamped in Smokey Plum, then I restamped over them with Versamark and added a mixture of Prisma Glitter and Clear Detail embossing powder to give them a little dazzle.

Then I added purple sparkles to the center of each one.






Be sure to come back tomorrow for my next non-winner!



Happy creating!  :)



Supplies used (all CTMH):
Paper:  Sonoma B&Ts; Colonial White, Cocoa, Smokey Plum CS
Stamp:  Holiday Magic - October SOTM
