I don't know snow...(CIC 244)

Our sponsor this week is Freckled Fawn!

Freckled Fawn is generously offering a $15 gift card as our fabulous prize to our random winner! 

Thank you for sponsoring this challenge!

Here's is this week's inspiration cupcake.
Our challenge this week is to use the color combination sage, cream, and mist. 

Before I give you my take, let me just say that I wouldn't know what to do with myself in the weather some parts of this country are experiencing. I grew up here in Houston and we have two seasons, hot and hotter. I hope everyone out there is safe and warm. :) With that being said, I have to laugh when I use snowmen on my cards because I can't remember the last time I built one.

I used Stampin' Up cardstock and, honestly, I am not sure of the exact color names. They were the closest I could come to the challenge colors. I'm also not a "cream" kind of girl so I used white. That's one of the things I love about our challenges; they're really open to your own interpretation. I stamped SU's Six-Sided Sampler with Versamark ink and used clear embossing powder to create my pattern. Decided to try this "quilting" trend everyone is beaming about. I like the trend but not quite sure about my version. :) I colored my snowman (from SU's Snow Buddy set) Prismacolor pencils after stamping him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added Diamond Stickles for my snowflakes.

On the inside, I used the same set to create a little tag using my Fiskars Hexagon punch. Here are some closeups.

 Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
