FMS and AAA: Peace, Love and Joy

A couple of days ago there was a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and I mentioned that I really struggled with the card that I posted.  During the struggle, I took a break from that card and spent some relaxing time looking at blogs and saw the challenge at AAA Cards - Maxi White Space with optional Christmas in July.  I knew I could use the FMS sketch with a Christmas scene!! Thank goodness for challenges to get the mojo going!!  So here's a second card for Freshly Made Sketches which came together due to AAA Cards.

FMS and AAA Xmas in July

I am definitely pushing the bounds for the AAA challenge.  The true meaning of "white space" is actually "empty space".  I definitely love clean cards with empty space, but this particular card is not "empty" even though it's "white. They were still the challenge that got my mojo going so definitely want to give them a shout-out!

Stamps: Reverse Confetti Winter Words
Dies: Reverse Confetti Winter Words Coordinates, Avery Elle Falling Snow, My Favorite Things Tree Lines
Cardstock: Taylored Expressions Sprinkles

  1. Fab card, love the pop of green on the sentiment. I hope it won't snow soon yet though lol. Thank you for playing at AAA Cards

  2. This is extra pretty Kim! I like all of the fresh snowy white with that little touch of soft green!

  3. This is so striking!! I LOVE all the white with the touch of the green. I want to do this sketch too but it is challenging!!

  4. White or empty, this is a great card! Hooray for the return of your mojo!

  5. Thanks so much for the shout out and explanation about why your card doesn't really have white space. Stunning card by the way. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.

  6. This is so gorgeous, Kim! You nailed both the sketch and the white space! Love the touch of seafoam green for your sentiment. Yay for MOJO!
