Winter

This week the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge is snowflakes and Rogue Redhead Designs wants to see vellum. Using the Mojo Monday sketch challenge, this is the card I created.
For Rogue Redhead, I used vellum both for the large snowflake and for the snow couple (from Candy Kisses). The snow couple was stamped on the vellum. Then I painted them with Creative Inspirations Paints on the back. It's cool how you can see the colors through the vellum.
As for the Cheery Lynn die cuts, I used two dies, but only part of each. To make the large snowflake, I cut out an Italian flourish doily. I snipped off the outer edge and this is what resulted. The long piece along the center is the edge from the Carnival Border. There are snowflakes embossed on the turquoise panel. They are not as visible on the scan. I can't remember who made the sentiment stamp.

Love your creativity with the Cheery Lynn Dies and the painting on the back of the vellum is a very pretty stained glass look! Love it!
