The Shape of Inspiration

Did you see the release at Meljen's Designs this week?  They are the greatest images!  Something to get you through this pre-holiday madness!

I know I will need a vacation once the holidays are over! 

This week the challenge is to create a card that is any shape but a rectangle.  For my inspiration project I decided to give a snowflake shaped card a try.

I cut the snowflake using the Cricut Christmas cartridge.  I welded together two 4.5" snowflakes and cut them out of Core'dinations cardstock from the whitewashed collection.  I embossed the snowflake and then sanded the embossing.  After that was finished, I sprayed the card with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Marshmallow.  You can't see it in the picture, but it has a lovely pearly sheen!  I colored the Snow Bunny image using Prismacolor pencils and baby oil.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and has a pearly sheen to it as well.  I won some blog candy from Enfys at the Going Buggy blog, and received a package full of goodies from Craftwork Cards.  I have to say, I am in love with their products.  I so wish it were easier to get them in the US!  After I cut the scalloped circle and oval punch, I sprayed them with the Glimmer Mist as well.
