Happy New Year! - Melonheadz friends Snow challenge

Happy new year, crafty friends. I hope you had a great holiday season and 2016 is good to you.

I'm here today with the first Melonheadz Friends challenge of the new year - snow/snowflakes. How perfect. I'm buried in the white stuff! It's truly beautiful, but I'm so glad it only comes in winter. LOL

So, as you can see, I have plenty of inspiration for this challenge!

I printed the background snowflake pattern first, then built my card around it.

The adorable little girl is from the Cold Weather Kidlets set, and the cut out snowflakes are from Season Winter. I created the sentiment using a couple of different stamp sets (see product list below).

Then, the snowflake challenge inspired me to get an early start on next year's Christmas and I made these using cheap glitter snowflake ornaments and handmade paper flowers.

For my second project - which I totally love! - I used this soft aqua and pink color combo. I think it turned out so pretty. Again, I printed the snowflake pattern onto my cardstock before doing any cutting. The snowflakes and the hat and mittens are from the Snow Day set.
You can see a little better in this closeup the sparkle of the Wink of Stella glitter pen I used on the pink.
