 Hi Everyone! Today is Sweet Stop Sketch Saturday and todays Sketch has a TWIST! You need to use Chipboard!!! :) Here is the sketch - I twisted it up right to change it up a bit....

Here is a close up of my card and the details:
Stamps: I Brake For Stamps Snowflake Collage, words are from SU -  use code SAVE10CHRIS as you shop at I Brake For Stamps to save 10%!
Cardstock: White, Olive, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Clear Snap Smooch Spritz, Heat Tool, Gold Embossing Powder, White Embossing Powder, Martha Stewart Gold Twill, Making Memories Chipboard, Big Shot, Embossing Folder Snowflakes

I was struggling with creativity and decided to mist my background with Clear Snap Smooch Spray Turquoise, but it looked plain so I then ran it through my Big Shot with my Snowflakes cuttlebug folder... Well, then I couldn't see the snowflakes very well... so I decided to smear White Craft Ink over it, but then I couldn't see that very well, so I added White Embossing Powder and heat embossed it and this is the background I came up with.... It really shimmers!!!

Take some time to check out the other FANTASTIC SUGAR BABIES Blogs...

Have a wonderful weekend!!! Thank you for stopping by!!!
