LIM97, OLW117 - Snow in Rows
During the Christmas season, I take a few turns standing at The Salvation Army Christmas Kettles at our local mall. It is a wonderful opportunity to help out a charity very close to my heart (The Salvation Army is my church, as well as the second largest provider of social services in Canada, after the various levels of Government).
It is also a wonderful opportunity to people watch! I admit it - I love looking at what they're wearing, what they're carrying, how they've done their hair. Hey, we can't be serious and grown up all the time! lol! And I do try to be kind in my thoughts!
Long way of saying that this card was inspired by a bag someone was carrying last Wednesday.
I added Stickles to the centres of the grey snowflakes for sparkle (stickles make other colours of Stampin' Up ink change colour) and I will link this up to this week's Less is More challenge, "In a Row" (I hope it's ok that I have more than one row!) and also this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge - Snow, which is being hosted by Susan.
For my row placement, I actually drew a graph on the front of my card, lightly in pencil, and erased it afterwards. Even with clear stamps, it's not always easy to get the positioning perfect!
