Paper Trey Ink Blog Hop and Vellum Die Cuts

I am way behind on making Christmas cards!! Oh well. 
On Nichole's blog I was drawn to the Liars book cover.  I liked the idea of a wind-blown feeling.  That is what I tried to portray with this card and the snow flakes.  You can find more information at Capture the Moment November Blog Hop.
I also tried to use Layered Vellum die cuts from Make It Monday.  I inked some of them, and left others white.  Added a bit of glitter and pearl centers to finish them off.
I used the color palette from Play Date Cafe and this fits the sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday 
And lastly, I think this qualifies for Less is More: Glamour and Glitz . The patterned paper is so glitzy!! 
Stamps: Paper Trey Ink
Paper: cardstock: PTI; patterned: Recollections
Diecuts: PTI and another old small punch
Ink: assorted
other: pearls; white embossing powder.
Thank you for looking!!

Make It Monday - Floating Image

Can you see the little bird in the window?
When I saw the technique over at Paper Trey Make It Monday, I knew it was one I wanted to try.  Things have finally settled down a bit (for me) after "Sandy", and I've been off from work all week. So I had the opportunity to create this card today. 

It was fun, relaxing and a bit of normalcy creating this. 
I used this sketch from Jingle Bells . And the color challenge from Dynamic Duos .


I am also putting this into 52 Card Pick Up .

all PTI except for "Nestabilities" circles, and the snowflakes.

That's all from me for now.  I hope everyone affected by Sandy is recovering, both physically and emotionally.  For some, I know, it will be a very long process.
