Color Dare 88


Color Dare 88
Riding Hood Red
Old Olive
Neutral of Choice

Since I was in the mood for a circle card, I immediately went with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch.  It was a perfect fit for what I had in mind, and I was doing a big happy dance as this doesn't happen to me very often!!  My one creative gene must be spreading some Christmas cheer early LOL!

Out came my newest addiction - the lacy circles.  I paired that with my combination double dot embossing folder kick as they were the perfect look of falling snow to go with the snowflake.  My tag migrated a tad from the sketch so hopefully the mouse police will be buried in the snow overseas and scared to venture out and check up on me :)

The rest of the Team has lots of inspiration for you.  You can check out their creations here:

This circle card ROCKS, Marisa!! Oh, wow. This is so beautiful. I love the layered snowflake. So pretty! I tried out this sketch this week, too. I don't have the necessary tools to make a circle card, so I had to go with a circle on a square card. I hope the mouse police don't come after me, either!
