Merry Monday Challenge #11

Today I made a card for Lesley's Merry Monday Challenge #11. I didn't have time to play last week and I am just barely under the wire this week!!  Each Monday she gives us a sketch design and we are suppose to create a Christmas card based on that sketch and get it posted before 8 p.m. on Saturday. It is a great way to get a head start on Christmas cards. Here's this week's sketch design:

And here's the card I made for this week's challenge.

I started with a navy card, added a Bashful blue panel and then a white panel that was embossed with the CB snowflake folder. A strip of navy was layered on top, after adding the two snowflake brads. The main image was stamped in Versafine on Bashful Blue CS, then sprinkled with Detail White Embossing powder. After heat embossing the image, I cut it out and popped it up with foam adhesive for some dimension.

The snowflake image is a Holly Berry House stamp. I don't know if the detail shows up in the photo or not, but it is a beautiful snowflake.

Thanks for taking a look. If you'd like to play along, check out Lesley's blog:
