Winter Card for 'ABC' Challenges and Freshly Made Sketches #65

Hello friends!  The challenge theme this week at 'ABC' Challenges is to make a card using paper piercing on it. I used the Blossom Punch around the snowflake and popped a glittery orange brad in the middle.  Originally I only used paper piercing on the snowflake, but then decided that it didn't show up very well so I added some piercing all around the DSP rectangle too.   The sentiment is on the inside rather than on the outside this time (something I rarely do).  This will be a thank you to my Secret Santa who spoiled me last week.

I am also entering Freshly Made Sketches #65  as my card is based on that sketch (see below).  I've noticed mixed reviews lately about sketch challenges as I've been visiting blogs.  I personally LOVE to combine sketch challenges with theme or color challenges as it helps me put a starting parameter around the rest of the card.  The sketches at FMS are always fun and leave lots of room for creativity.  I stuck pretty close to the sketch this time as I was short on time. I like how it turned out - simple but fun.  I hope you like it too :o)
Please go visit the other ladies on the DT for 'ABC' Challenges this week and see what they have prepared for your inspiration.


  1. What a great color combo! And I love all the paper piercing! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. What a super use of this sketch! I know I am a little biased but I just love working with a sketch challenge. My cards always come along faster that way. :-) Love the colors here. Fantastic card. Glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  3. Danielle, I love the color scheme you used! Very pretty!


Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment. It makes my day happier! Hugs!
