Winter Day

It's time for another What If? Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  As part of our changes this year, we have a new type of challenge for you.  This week is a tic-tac-toe challenge: choose any row, column or diagonal and use those elements to create your card.
No automatic alt text available.
For my cards, I was almost able to run the whole board!  I used a winter theme, glitter (on the snow), blue, ribbon AND twine, buttons, snowman and patterned paper.  I wasn't able to incorporate the fun fold or stitching.
The horizontal panel is a scrap from a pad I am now working on using up and the buttons were salvaged from a piece of clothing that my girls have outgrown and were two worn to pass on to someone else.  So, I got to use scraps and recycle on this one!  Gotta love it!  Hop on over to The House blog and check out the full details and see what the rest of the DT has created for this challenge.

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Snowman, 2-sided swing stamp set" there are two images plus a compound sentiment.  I used one of the images and masked off the sentiment.
Dies: Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A" rectangle

Challenges:
Cuttlebug Mania--winter wonderland
Creative Craft Cottage #79--ribbons and/or pearls
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps #363--favorite color (blue is my favorite color, specially this turquoise-y blue)
Fashionable Stamping #119--winter OR spring
Creative Fingers #122--anything goes
Crafty Catz--anything goes: ribbon
Unicorn Challenge #17--January Blues
Cutie Pie Challenge--winter warmers
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper--anything goes with patterned paper
Divas That Cut--no sentiment
Crafting By Designs--anything goes
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2--choose your favorite sketch (I chose #91)
