I had such a fun time with this challenge! I decided to use two neutrals (kraft and white) and make red the main event! I stamped Frosties snowflakes in white to make a custom background. I also inked the edges of the card in white to give it that "frosty" look :). Then I heat embossed Quinn's ABCs in white, cut out the letters and filled them in with red Stickles - custom faux letter stickers! I used Harold's ABCs to finish off my greeting. The finishing touch was some gorgeous May Arts Ribbon! I like that it looks like a present with the bow!

Next head on to the fantastic Linda Trace's blog. If you've gotten off track, don't worry! Head on back to Lawnscaping to see the complete list of designers and prize information!
