I created this card with two challenges in mind. Paper Trey Ink has a different type of challenge during their release week. They call it Create Along With US. They ask you to create a project using inspiration from one of the designers, They released a new coverplate this month and there were so many good ideas that I got from how the designers used it, but Betsy Veldman added a stamped image behind the frame, and I loved that idea. Since there were some holiday cards included in the release,many of the designers added some sparkle to their cards with glitter so I used that idea too by cutting the coverplate from glitter paper. See the challenge and the entries HERE
Since my stamping buddy and mentor Donna Pheland is hosting the Mod Squad Challenge this week I also wanted to participate in that challenge which is Winter with a die cut. Nothing says winter more than snow and a snow man. I created the look of snow by using some Versamark ink and white embossing powder. There are two prizes offered up this week to one random winner so go look at the challenge and join us in the fun and maybe you will win one of the prizes. You will find that challenge HERE
The snowman and sentiment are from Gina K designs and the cover plate is PTI.
Here is Betsy's beautiful card using the new coverplate.
