Retro Rubber Challenge Blog 126 "Winter is Here!"

Today's card challenge is from the folks over at Retro Rubber. It's a Winter themed challenge. I was excited about that because I love snow! Not the kind that makes people have car accidents and travel delays, but the soft kind that you wake up to on a clear morning that leaves a quietness and peace around the neighborhood.

Having said that, it's been almost 7 years since I lived in Pennsylvania, and now that I'm in Florida, I only had one stamp set that fit the description of this challenge. At first I didn't think I could pull it off, but I'm glad I challenged myself to see what I could create with just a couple of snowflake stamps.

I had to rely heavily on patterned paper and rhinestones to give this one a more snowy feel, but I really like how it turned out.

Here's my supply list:

Hero Arts Stamp Set (CL342) from 2014

Snowflake Stamps:
Hampton Arts from 2015

Sizzix Scalloped Set

Gifted from a friend
Unknown company

White Embossing Powder

Stampin' Up! Blueberry Bushel Ink & Card Stock

Misc. Rhinestones

Thanks so much to everyone over at Retro Rubber for another great challenge, and thanks for stopping by my blog today!
