Freshly Made Sketches #60

Time for a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches! The sketch this week is brought to us by Tui.  You can always change out shapes to suit your needs as long as you follow the basic sketch outline. Here is a look at the original sketch-

I used the new Sizzix Snow Flurry die by Stampin Up to cut my snowflake from glittery chipboard.  My chipboard was originally all silver.  I colored parts of my snowflake with the new Exclusive Inks Markers by Close to My Heart.  I used Pacifica to match my cardstock.  The alcohol based markers are great for coloring glitter trim and other embellishments to coordinate your projects.

I added strips of silver shimmer trim to the inside of my card and stamped with my favorite holiday sentiment from the Ornamental Cheer stamp set.  Thesilver shimmer trim is self adhesive and applies easily to your projects.  It only takes a small amount to add a lot of bling to your project!
