Merry Monday: A Rainbow of Snowflakes

I am thrilled to be a guest designer at this week's Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  I like this week's challenge a lot. I've spent quite a bit of time over the last week working on Christmas cards with mainly very traditional colors - either greens and reds, or blues for winter snowflakes. This week's challenge at Merry Monday is a rainbow!


I thought long and hard about using Christmas ornaments - just like in the graphic.  But I had a new set on my desk that was calling my name so I decided to make it work.  I'm not sure if a rainbow of snowflakes makes much sense - but it is definitely "merry"!

Merry Monday Rainbow 4

I love these snowflakes.  I needed another snowflake set like a hole in the head, but I love their open, knotted, almost Celtic look - so they definitely found a home in my collection.  I used basic Stampin' Up colors to create the rainbow - even the long-retired Marvelous Magenta.  I actually have every color they have ever come out with - along with reinkers and cardstock.  I'm obsessive like that!  But clearly it's necessary because Marvelous Magenta was absolutely required for that last snowflake.

I hope to see you playing along with Merry Monday.  You'll definitely see me in the gallery each week from now until Christmas because I can't afford to miss a week with at least 2 or 3 Christmas cards coming out of my craft desk.  I love the variety of challenges at Merry Monday - they will keep me motivated!

SUPPLY LIST

The bottom purple snowflake is Stampin' Up Marvelous Magenta.  The snowflake centers are Stampin' Up rhinestones colored with Copics.
