Card Ideas Challenge - Winter with Blue and Purple


We have started weekly challenges over at Card Ideas and this week I'm joining in with a sample for you!
Each 3rd Saturday of the month we will be having a Christmas/Winter themed challenge so that you will have a great start on your Christmas crafting by the time December rolls around again!

For many January means snow, cold and/or ice. For this week's challenge create a Christmas/Winter card/project using:

1.Any Designed2Delight image
2.Blues & purples (you can also use white and/or black for your neutral)
3.Any embellishment that seems "icy" to you...glitter, glossy effects, clear coating, etc.

Challenges:
Crazy Challenge - Animals
Fuzzy Wuzzy - Anything Goes (with an Animal image)
Stamping Vacation Watch This - March of the Penguins
Ooh La La - Bling It On
Stamp With Sarah Kay - Glitter/Sparkling
Papertake Weekly - Cold and Frosty Morning
Stamp With Fun - Snow
Hanna and Friends - Snow
Belli - Snow
Hand Stamped Sentiments - Punches
AI Factory - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Anything Goes
Meljen's - Square or Round Card
Paperplay - Cutie Patootie


Card Recipe:
Image - Skating Penguin
Paper - Winter Mat Stack by DCWV and Lilac Avenue by Kaisercraft
Medium - Copic Markers
Punches - Martha Stewart
Sentiment - Printed in Yippy Skippy font
Rhinestones - Michaels



This is such a sweet image and will work for Christmas/Winter or simply as a fun little note to someone!
I thought the silver pattern on the paper reminded me of snow falling and the Stickles on his hat added a little snowy sparkle too!
