Pink & Blue Snowflakes

The colors for a previous ColourQ challenge reminded me of my favorite winter pajamas, pink with white and pink snowflakes. I've been waiting to find some time to play with the Season of Friendship set, so this inspired me to create a pink snowflake card.

I brayered with Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose to create the background color. I stamped Regal Rose snowflakes, and created snow with my favorite technique, hand-torn and glittered drifts. More sparkle with a Pear Pizzazz glimmer brad.

Stamps: Season of Friendship; Paper: Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White; Ink: Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Real Red, Pear Pizzazz; Accessories: Brayer, Pear Pizzazz ribbon, In Color glimmer brad, Two-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Northern Flurry embossing folder, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

I then went with the same layout for a blue snowflake tree, using the colors from the Color Lab Color Challenge #22.

This is also be a good submission for the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #34.

I brayered with Baja Breeze and Marina Mist ink. And do you see a sneak peek item? I used a Pacific Point button from the Sale-a-bration Ice Cream Parlor ribbon & button pack. Don't you want to earn fun accessories like this for free? Don't forget to book your Sale-a-bration workshop now!

Cute! I love to see the same card in different colors. I'm partial to the blue one. ;) Isn't it funny how some weeks, the challenges all seem to be the same. Great minds must think alike! Thanks for playing along at the SCIC!

I love that you could do them in both sets of colors. I love blue (and, in general, dislike pink) so I LOVE That one!
