A Gift for YOU!

Hello everyone!  Today I am playing along with the Wednesday Challenge Blog over at Simon Says Stamp. This weeks challenge was to create your own background...and you couldn't use patterned paper to do it.  I had been in the middle of playing with the December Simon Says Stamp Card kit and decided to use the stencil from it and a white Gelly pen to create my background.

I placed the snowflake stencil at various angles on the red cardstock and traced it. It was so simple and so fast. I also traced the same snowflake stencil on white cardstock and covered it in Martha Stewart glitter.

I die cut the gift card holder from a PaperTrey ink die and some Bella Blvd. paper. The little penguin is from Purple Onion Designs, colored in with Prismacolor Pencils.. A Gift for you is Hero Arts.

I made 12 cards last week. I will be back to share more soon. Have a wonderful Monday.
