The theme for Jingle Belles is 'Merry and Bright' and with my card yesterday I just felt that I fell a little flat with the "bright" portion of the theme. Sure, the colors were something I don't normally use and were bright to me but I knew I could do something a little brighter so that is how today's card came about! Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise definitely make a bright combo and I feel much better about this card meeting the challenge theme!
I stayed true to the sketch, keeping all the elements Lesley has on it. The circle with the snowman is popped up with dimensionals. I did put glitter on the snowball and snowman after I took the picture though. I had meant to do it before snapping the photo but got sidetracked with making dinner and thought about it after I had the photos loaded already, ooops!
