Limelight Sketch & Product Challenge #30

Happy Thursday! It's time for another Limelight Sketch & Product Challenge! This week's focus is on patterned paper. We also have a little something SNEAKY up our sleeves for you...an extra HIDDEN prize! Be sure to check out all the DT blogs, because one lucky commenter will win the new BasicGrey Indian Summer Pops!
I don't usually start my wintry crafting until November, but I've been looking through my copy of Paper Crafts Holiday Cards & More this week, and it really inspired me. I was even whistling Christmas tunes as I read!

So, I pulled out this fun Cosmo Cricket Golly By Jolly paper and got to work. I pulled all my colors from this sweet snowflake pattern and found cardstock to match. I punched a few snowflakes, stamped my sentiment, and added plenty of bling with some Kaisercraft rhinestones. I've found the Island Lagoon rhinestones coordinate so well with PTI's Aqua Mist, and the Soft Pink rhinestones go great with Sweet Blush.

The Details:
**Use the sketch above and dress it up with your favorite PATTERNED PAPER!!

**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC030
**Post a comment with a link to your card on Mandy's blog by Sunday, September 20, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.).

**PRIZE ~ One lucky winner will receive the Unity Stamp Co. Hauntingly Sweet Stamp Set!

Stamps: Cold Play (SU)
Paper: Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, Cosmo Cricket dp
Ink: Ocean Tides
Accessories: Kaisercraft rhinestones, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, dimensionals

This is adorable! I love how you repeated the sentiment three times but each time adding a rhinestone and I love how you put the aqua rhinestones in the center of the snowflakes to match the aqua sentiments and the pink on the sentiments to match the snowflakes. That CC paper is so cute. Great card!
