Favorites

Hi Friends, it's me, Laura!

I have for you today, my DT card for the Twist Of Faith card challenge blog.  This week's theme is FAVORITES.  How fun is that???  Sounds easy, right?  Well, it isn't as easy as you might think.  I once made myself a list of my favorite things, and before I knew it, I had filled several pieces of columned paper, front and back, and was even adding things in the margins, sideways.  So how in the world is a girl to narrow down those choices and fit them into a 6 x 6 inch card?  It wasn't easy but I did have help.

Our challenge is being sponsored by the fabulous Designed 2 Delight who is allowing us to give away THREE prizes this week.  As soon as I clicked onto their website, I saw the Moonlight Snowman and had to have him because snowmen are most definitely one of my favorite things.
Isn't he just too cute?  I colored him up with my Copics, inked with my Distress Inks and then used a Snow Writer and Star Dust Stickles at the base (all favorites).  I chose purple for my main color scheme because of another challenge I am entering and also because it was a new challenge for me to try using some "non-traditional" colors.  I am pleased with the result and it looks even better in person.

May you purify me from sin with hyssop, that I may be clean;
May you wash me, that I may become whiter even than snow.
Psalms 51:7

Thank You so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate your taking time to visit.  The recipe for this card is at the bottom of this post.  Please don't forgot to stop by Twist Of Faith Cards and see what my very talented teammates have created and hopefully be inspired to participate in our challenge.  Have a great day and even better tomorrows!

♥ Laura C.

Laura, this is such a cute, cute card. I like the way you've used the purple color. Purple is a color that I don't tend to use, but I always like when someone else uses it. It is such a non-traditional "winter" color that it really stands out in such a lovely way on this little snow guy.

Absolutely love this one.Great design with the distressing, snowflakes and the sparkly snow. And I just love non traditional colours too and that purple you've chosen makes it gorgeus.
