Blue Angel

Since I'm home from school today, I thought I'd check out the limited supplies challenge before I tackled my Christmas to-do list. Today's challenge was to make a holiday card using blue as the main color and only one embellishment. Since glitter didn't count as an embellishment, I used my clear glitter pen to color the snow and bits of the boy's outfit. I also grabbed my red glitter pen to highlight the words "snow angels" on my background paper.

After I made this card, I realized I forgot the whole holiday aspect of the challenge. So this is to celebrate the first day of winter on Sunday. :)

Stamps: Snow Angels

Paper: Bashful Blue, Real Red, PTI white, The Paper Studio dp
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: Nestabilities circles, red & clear glitter pens (Spica), Copic markers (B02, E00, R27), ribbon (unknown), dimensionals, corner rounder punch
