Dakota Christmas Card - H2H Challenge

FINALLY, I have a working blog once again! I had to consult a specialist to get it repaired and he ended going through lines and lines of code, but the problem is now repaired. It came down to a "free" background that I had downloaded a few months ago that mysteriously disappeared from my blog about a month ago. All I can say is don't visit Hot Bliggity Blogs for your background - it will screw up your blog like it did to mine and it's not worth the hassle! I am just so thankful that mine could be repaired and I have all my functions back once again :)

The Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week is a sketch and I love sketches! And who would have thought that Dakota papers could be used for Christmas cards? I am loving these papers more and more (and quickly running out of them) and this Flakey Friends stamp set is becoming a favourite of mine. 
The sketch is below the card.


Products used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise indicated: 

Paper: Dakota Paper Pack, White Daisy Cardstock, Pacifica Cardstock, Crystal Blue Cardstock
Stamps: Flakey Friends
Inks: Pacifica, Black Pigment Ink, White Daisy, Versamark
Accessories: Art Philosophy Cartridge, Clear Sparkles, Markers: Sky, Crystal Blue, Pacifica, Orange Sharpie (not CTMH), Brown Sharpie (not CTMH), Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Prisma Glitter, Corner Rounder, Foam Tape

  3. Wow--great detail on this card. Stamped and embossed AND Cri-cut snow-flakes. Your colouring of the flakey friend is divine!
