H2H Challenges: Season of White

When my teammate suggested the "Season of White" challenge for the Heart2Heart blog, I thought that I would create a white card of some sort, but of course that isn't what happened at all.  Inspiration struck when we were hit with our first snowstorm of the year, a literal blanket of white!  I quickly sent off my pictures to our local Walmart for developing so that I could scrapbook them right away.
My photos dictated my color palette of Pacifica, Crystal Blue, and White Daisy.  I pulled our card stock in all three colors, then grabbed my Whimsy and Adventure Fundamentals packs to see what kind of patterned paper I had in my color scheme.  I love using the two different polka dot patterns from the two paper packs, which inspired me to stamp the "snowfall" polka dots from the Charming Cascades stamp set in Pacifica on the Pacifica card stock.
I knew that I just had to use my new white glitter paper on this snowy layout.  I fell in love with the snowflake border from the CTMH/Cricut Artbooking cartridge (cut four times at 11-1/2").  The "snow" pennant and snowflakes were all cut from that one Cricut key.
The rest of the pennants were cut by hand.  The "love" sentiment is actually one of the patterns of the Whimsy Fundamentals.  To add a little sparkle and pizzazz, I embellished my layout with Sparkles and Blue Enamel gems.
Here's a close-up of the cool glitter paper snowflake border:
Be sure to visit the H2H blog to see the different interpretations of the Season of White challenge.  I hope you'll play along with us this month!

Love that layout! Blue and white and snowflakes and glitter - how could you go wrong? I'm amazed you got it done so quickly, too.
