Carolina Girl (Cely)
Talk about last minute!!!!!  I have one hour before the QKR Challenge #206 closes.  Theme: balls or sports balls.  I don't like sports very much...loved watching the Olympics, but that is about as far as my love goes.  Soooo...I thought outside the box.  Balls.....SNOWBALLS!!!!  I used QKR digi14214 Selling snowflakes.  Another challenge is at Die Cuttin Divas #281 : Anything Goes.

I got this wonderful template idea from Deloris at Stampin by the Lake.  I bought Lori Whitlock's Pull-Out Snowflake card template from the Silhouette Store.  ( I also cut off snowflakes at bottom so card would stand nicely.)

A2, copics, pop-ups for dimension, card die, rolling hills die from Lawn Fawn, Wink Of Stella for the background and snowflakes (which you probably can't see) snowflake embellishment, circle punches

Insert for the can see a little more of the 3-D effect and snow drift
I will wait to put a sentiment of my choosing

    Well I don't know where MY mind was when you said the theme was balls! Great way to think outside the box - I would have never in a million years thought of snowballs. Love your little frosty and fancy dimensional card.

    What about a snowball fight? Could be a sport... Good thinking for keeping your eye on the ball. He is such a cute guy.

  15. now aren't you creative...snowballs are a clever take on the challenge. Love the pull card...and how you modified it at the bottom. I have made this card base too but my image went the other way with the snowflakes on each side! Such a great file -loved your out of the box design change.
