Merry Monday #82

The challenge this week for Merry Monday #82 is to use red/aqua/white and circles.  Here is the inspiration photo:

And here is my card based on the Splitcoast Stampers SC461 sketch challenge.  I omitted panel 4 and used a circle instead of a square for panel 5.


I used SU Pool Party and Real Red CS.  The white panel is Image Plus CS and is embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflake EF.  The aqua snowflake paper is from MME Lost & Found Christmas pad, and is matted with Pool Party CS.  I stamped the cute Stampendous M301 Snow Girl on X-Press It Blending Card, colored her with Promarkers and SU Pool Party & Bermuda Bay markers and cut her out.  I also stamped her on the DSP from Teresa Collins Santa's List pad, and cut her out with MFT Pierced Circle Stax dies.  I positioned her so the small red snowflake (in the DSP) would be by her hat, and glued the colored image over the stamped image on the DSP.  That way I didn't have to fussy cut her thin arms.  I added some Ranger Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles to the snow  under the snow girl.  I cut the Real Red mat with MFT Circle Stax 1 set.  The aqua snowflake is from Spellbinders Create-a-Flake 4 and the white one is a MS punch. I layered them and added a silver brad to the center.
 
I am also linking this to the Festive Friday color challenge as it is the same colors.
 
And to Christmas Cards All Year 'Round which is Winter Wonderland - Winter theme, snow, snowflakes, etc.
 
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  I appreciate your comments.
 
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
