Happy Cyber Monday! Wow, the internet is running kinda slow today. LOL! Here's hoping that I can get this post done before it crashes! Here's a card I made last night:

Here's the inside:

I used the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch #128 

and the colors from CTD #270

I'm not completely happy with how this turned out, but I got all the elements needed so I'm leaving it as is. I really like the sketch, so perhaps I'll be using it again. ☺ On the embossed panel, I went over the design lightly with Frost White ink to make it more visible and also to break up the kraft on kraft. I stamped the sentiment then thought it needed something more so I stamped the snowflakes. (Probably should have stamped the snowflakes first then the sentiment. Oh well, you live and learn!) And who doesn't enjoy silver glitter paper for some added shine! (Of course, if you really look at the inside, you'll see it started going everywhere! I'd clean it up, blink, and there was more! Grrr!) 

I'm also going to enter this for Shopping Our Stash #129 - Holiday or Winter, and

Thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment. It does my ego wonders! LOL! Have a great day!
