Snow Wonderful



I was more than a little afraid of today's SCS color challenge colors (Riding Hood Red, Taken With Teal, and Baja Breeze) - after all, anything with Taken With Teal is scary. But I ended up really liking the wintry feel of this combo.

The adorable snowman and sentiment are from Verve's new Snow Wonderful set. For the snow, I layered some torn strips of white, then glittered the edges with Frosted Lace Stickles. The white snowflakes were punched with the Martha Stewart snowflake punch and also coated with Frosted Lace Stickles.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
