Covered in Snowflakes

I love the images of snowflakes falling but I don't like the coldness of them in real life! I made these cards yesterday and love this Snow Swirled set for making pretty snowflake backgrounds.

This first card is for Papertake Weekly's Sketch Challenge #74, La-La Land Crafts Challenge to use paper piecing (I pieced her hat and body warmer with the same DSP as on the card) and ColourQ's Challenge #165 to use these fab bright colours. You know, I hardly ever used Glorious Green when it was a current colour as I just didn't like it at all, but I've used it twice recently and the colours it has been put with actually make me quite like it!


And here's my card.

And my final card is for SUO Challenge #59 to use a fancy fold on your card. I actually found this card on Pinterest and just had to case it, with some slight variations and it's actually the one I'm doing at a workshop on Thursday for a group of my regular ladies as a special Christmas treat as it's way more involved than I would normally do for them.

This is the front view.


And this is the side view.

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by.
