PWCO Sketch #38 Guest Designer

I was very excited when I was chosen as the Guest Designer over at Paperworks Co Blog for their Sunday Sketch Challenge #38.

As soon as Peggy sent me the sketch, I knew immediately that I wanted to use this image from Christmas Freckle Collection of Little Loud Stamps. I really loved how this card came together. I used some BG Eskimo Kisses Paper, distressed it and used some snow flakes for accent. I kept the card simple with the image taking the main stage. I Used some stickles on the mail box and on the image to mimic the snow.

Thanks PWCO for giving me this opportunity. I really enjoyed creating this card. I hope you all can play along with sketch #38 this week to get an opportunity to be the Guest Designer.
