The First 2016 Challenge...A  Sketch

For my card, I made a wintery card using my George and Basic Shapes and Winter Lace Cricut Cartridges all using left over scraps that I've had lying around!  I love when you dive into that pile!

Here is my finished product.
I cut the Circle at 3" from my George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge, and then used the shadow feature to cut the mat for the circle.
The Snowflake is fromt the Winter Lace Cricut Cartridge and was cut at 2 3/4".  I need to use this cartridge more because it has such beautiful snowflake cuts.

As mentioned EVERYTHING is from my stash of scraps.  I love when you can make cards from stash stuff!

Materials Used:
*George and Basic Shapes cut at 3" circle
*Winter Lace cut at 2 3/4" (Snowflake)
*Pearl bling from Recollections
*Paper from Stash
