Paper Wings Challenge.... and result

We had a great challenge for us "angels" over on Paper Wings Tuesday. It was a "Limited Supply" challenge... we were only allowed certain things that we could use. The challenge was:

one 3x3 sheet of color cardstock
one 2.5 x2.5 sheet of white cardstock
one 2x2 sheet of colored cardstock
snowflake stamp
1 image of your choice
1 ink pad color of your choice
black ink

Here's what I can up with. I used a small snowflake from the Ornamental Snowflake set and stamped on the dark green cardstock using Brilliance Moonlight White ink and swiped the white on the edges. I punched my white cardstock with an EK Success pine tree border punch. Then I stamped the pine bough from the Good Timber set with Noir PH ink on my light green cardstock. Can you see the white on the needles and branch?

I used my White Gel pen to accent the branch to give a hint of snow! I also sanded the edge of the paper using a sanding block for a bit more emphasis.

I decided to use this little creation on a card so I created this card. Again I used the small snowflake and white ink on the light green card, added the 1" sheer green ribbon. I dug out the snowflake punch, punched 2 out of white, and added the little brad that almost matches the light green paper. I also used my color duster and added just a hint of Starry Night PH ink on the edges of the punched snowflakes before assembling. The text is from the Be Still set and stamped in Noir ink. I really like how this turned out! What do you think??

I hope to get a couple more challenges done this week and get them posted. My life is starting to get crazy with Christmas right around the corner. I have yet to finish some gifts and get them wrapped and mailed!! I still have 2 that haven't arrived yet!! Hopefully... How are you coming along with your Christmas preparations??
