Hi Friends!

I am so excited to share some news with you!

I’ve been invited to be a member of the {BYSH} Design Team! BYSH stands for Build Your Stash Holiday We’re a group of crafters that share holiday inspiration monthly using a monthly sketch and also through a blog hop!  I hope you’ll join us in our monthly sketch challenges and blog hop! You’ll be happy you got a jump start on all of your holiday crafting for the year!

Today’s project is for this month’s new Sketch Challenge – #12! Join us over on our {BYSH} Cardmakers Facebook Group or on the {BYSH} Cardmakers Instagram for tons of inspiration and fun!

If you join along, please use our #byshcsketchchallenge12 tag so we can see all of your amazing creations!

My project for this sketch is using the So Many Snowflakes die set.


I paired these dies with soft colors – Pool Party Designer Series Paper from the Pattern Party Host Pack and Petal Pink from the Soft Subtles 6″ x 6″ stack. I added some Rose Gold Specialty Paper for a pop of shimmer and texture! The Rose Gold plus the Wink of Stella and Champagne Rhinestones make this card so wintry soft.

This card makes me long for winter. I’m sure I’m in the minority but I’m about over Summer 4 days into it.. haha!

I hope you enjoyed my card inspired by #byshcsketchchallenge12 today!
