"We do not remember days, we remember moments." Cesare Pavese

Hey there! Wow... its Monday, again! Spent the entire afternoon on Sunday (yep... the entire afternoon) making a card for several challenges. I didn't think it would take me all afternoon as I was working with a sketch (which generally speeds things up for me) and a "card recipe", but when you mix in the fact that I was also fixing dinner at the same time a 30 minute project can turn into a 3+ hours project.
Anywhoo... the card is for the current Paper Players challenge (a recipe: 3 patterned papers, 2 ribbons, one punch & some glitter). I also made this for the Flourishes "Snowy Delight" challenge. The layout is courtesy of this month's Something For You to Try sketch. The patterned papers are Frostwood Lodge from Stampin Up! The stamps are from the Flourishes sets Holiday Sparkle and Country Charm Labels. To be honest I know that one of the things that slowed me down in the completion of the card was the label I created using some ribbon, buttons and twine. From start to finish it probably took me a good half hour just to make the label as you see it on the card. You might be wondering where the punched item is on the card and that would be the little flower in the center of the snowflake ornament. I stamped the flower image from the SU! set Punch Potpourrie and then punched out the flower using my Boho Blossoms punch. Glitter was added to the trimmed out pine bough and ornament. Despite the amount of time it took to make the card I am totally and completely pleased with the outcome!
