CMTH Card Swap/Challenge

Every month our CTMH (Close to My Heart) unit does a mini card swap. One person provides an identical sheet of paper for everyone, and the next month we bring back completed cards using that paper.

Last month we were given this (retired) paper:

There were actually a few different colors of the same pattern this time. Usually they are exactly the same. I chose the Ponderosa Pine color.

And this is what I ended up creating with my paper:

I flipped the paper over so the more splotchy Ponderosa Pine pattern was showing, not the words. I matted my random stamped snowflake paper on top of it.

I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the top with the Swiss dot pattern. Added a clear button with a rhinestone to the center of 1 snowflake, and finished that snowflake off with glitter.

Here's a look at what the other gals came up with: (I'm always amazed at how different they turn out!)

I LOVED your cards this time Linda!! I'm saving mine for "inspiration" for one of my upcoming card workshops *wink*.
