The First Snow

I love this week's monochromatic colors at Dynamic Duos.  The soft colors reminded me of a misty forest when the snow first starts to fall.

The First Snow

Here are the first few snowflakes...




I used this week's Merry Monday sketch.


And I'm going to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp: Emboss It challenge.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Dynamic Duos design team has done with the colors - it's a gorgeous gallery!!  Then try it yourself and head over to link it up...we love to see what you have done!

  • Stamps: Stampin' Up Trees Three, Labelicious
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Always Artichoke
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Always Artichoke and Certainly Celery
  • Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossing folder, Stampin' Up Label Punch and celery ribbon, Martha Stewart Snowflake border punch and Crystal Fine Glitter

So, are you DYING for one snow in Parker like we are in Littleton, Kim? LOL, this heat is starting to make me crazy... I killed a FLY in my house today! It's almost October, that's crazy talk for CO! ;) I LOVE this pretty card! The snow layered over the trees is just so perfect. Thanks SO much for popping by my blog earlier this week.

Oh, what a perfect choice of dry-embossing for the background! I'm sure you picked it to go with the snowfall theme, and it really works wonderfully.
