Procrastination is my Superpower!

For my Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers post, click here, or just keep scrolling! ☺

Hello peeps! I have a card to share combining a couple challenges, one of which is about to expire, so this is gonna be quick. (wink!)

 Here is the inside:

I'm playing along with Merry Mondays #118 (use buttons and ribbon), and Freshly Made Sketch #146.
It's pretty self explanatory. The two horizontal strips are bits of ribbon. I glued a button on top of the snowflake. When I had everything adhered on the front, I thought there was too much white space, so I took the nozzle off of the glimmer mist and tapped splotches over the card. (I did cover the main elements so they didn't get any ink on them) I wasn't planning on doing that on the inside panel, but I smeared some brown ink on it (Grrr!), so more splotches. A strategically placed splotch covered the smear. It's like I meant to do that! LOL!

Here are the challenge graphics:


That's all I have for now. Thanks for hanging out, and I hope you have a great day!
