Just Us Girls Challenge #214 Words, words Words!!

Hello!! My good friend and fellow design team member, Lisa, has set a terrific challenge for us this week!  Use words to create your own background!  This was fun!!  Please see the JUGS blog for tons of inspiration and a link to a tutorial on how to do this.  Mine is not perfect because I just jumped in without marking my paper!  JUGs BLOG

 This card has so many things I love!!  And isn't what it's all about-using things we love?!?  I love turquoise and red for colors, whether it's a Christmas card or a winter card!  I love this High Hope Santa Claus face (so cute!).  Anna Wight's Diamond Dust snowflakes are also so fun to make and use!  I kept the layout simple and maybe you can tell it looks a bit like our (JUGS) sketch from last week!  Just flipped!
 I stamped my PTI words (a 5.00 set!!) in Taken with Teal on Hawaiin Shores cardstock.  I just stamped the word SNOW alternating it's placement and leaving 1/4" in between so I could add in 'Let it snow' afterward.  The dotted paper is from Bo Bunny.  Snowflakes are punched from white card stock, sponged with a little Coastal Cabana and then covered with glossy accents and Diamond Dust Glitter Glass. 
I leave these to dry for quite a while before handling.

My Santa is colored with my distress markers and then color was moved around with a water brush. I also added Stardust Stickles to Santa's hat for extra sparkle!
Please take a look at your word or sentiment stamps and see what you can come up with for this challenge!  We'd love to see what you do!
We also have a guest designer for this month!  Congratulations to Nancy at Artful Notions!  Please check out her blog too! Lovely creations!
Have a great day!! Cheryl

That Santa is just too cute and you colored him beautifully. These colors are so pretty together, one of my favs, too. Your background is perfect with the tone on tone look.
