Our current challenge at A Blog Named Hero is to CASE an a favorite card of the year.  I chose a card by Jennifer Kotas by using her design, dark blue background, shaker element and the white embossed feature.


My Hero Arts snowflakes are all very old stamps as is the sentiment - one of my all time favorites.  I began by first cutting the rectangle window, arranging the various snowflake stamps and the sentiment using my MISTI, stamping in Versamark and white embossing.  Next I mixed up some white gouache with a little water and spattered all over the background.  I dry embossed a piece of lighter blue cs with a snow ef and put the shaker part together using some HA snowflakes and sequins.  Added a glittery die cut snowflake and mounted all on a white card base.

I'm sure you have a favorite card that will inspire you to CASE it using Hero Arts products and enter here.  You'll have a chance to win one of two gift cards from Hero Arts.

EDIT:  Cat pointed out that my card would work for Challenge Up Your Life Challenge (snowflakes theme) so will enter it there also. 

Thanks for visiting today.
