JUGS #165 Sketch

JUGS165

This week's sketch challenge is brought to us by Andrea. I combined it the ColourQ challenge as the colours allowed me to use this delightful Echo Park Christmas paper again.  Have no fear - I will run out of it eventually LOL!

A nice easy card you could mass produce quite easily, and make more mailable by omitting the pearls and replacing them with a punched out dot or double layer with another snowflake.

After seeing the picture of the card on my blog, I realized I should have been a bit more cognoscente of where the red snowflakes on the designer paper were.  Some of the punched snowflakes look a bit oddly shaped due to their overlapping the ones on the paper. Good note to self.

For some inspiration to get you going, just hop on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team have created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card or project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be selected as Chic of the Week.

This weekend's job:  decorating the inside of the house for Christmas :)
