FFC03 - Element Challenge...

Welcome back to another Festive Friday challenge! We had some fantastic entries in our last challenge, and it was so great to see how you all worked with the theme and elements in the inspiration graphic! Thank you *so* much to everyone who took time out to play along and link up! 

Again, we had such a hard time choosing our favourites, but we did manage to narrow it down. Here they are, in no particular order! 

Shout Outs!

We loved how Colleen layered her stamps and ink colours to create so much depth to her card.

Marcia did such a great job using what she had on hand to give her card a rustic feel.

How could we not love this clever design by Kim? She focused on the bells in the inspiration picture and made one great big bell!

And our Winner!

We love how Ardyth created a CAS beauty based on a rustic theme - not an easy task, but she executed it perfectly!

Congratulations ladies! Please email me at and I will get you your badges!

Now, onto this week's challenge! This week, we are issuing an Element Challenge, and ask that you include a snowflake in your creation this time around:

Here are the design team's creations:




This time around, we are joined by our awesome guest designer, Cherry Nelson, of Cherry's Jubilee

I live in a very rural area in Oregon....with my dh, son, dog, and two cats.  All are male...yep you heard me.  I like to stay in touch with my feminine side by creating in my studio.  I have loved paper and scissors since a little girl.  Several years ago I started scrapbooking and it lead to cards and altered art.   I have a serious passion for paper...and try to create everyday!

Here is Cherry's gorgeous creation for this challenge:

Now it's your turn! Create any holiday themed project that includes a snowflake element! You can combine our challenge with your other favourite challenges, and enter as many times as you like. This challenge will run until March 13, 2013 at 11:59PST. We will post our favourites when the next challenge goes live!

***Please remember to link up your actual blog post and not just your blog address!***

Great wins - well done!
Thanks too for the inspiration, I've been inspired to play and went for a non-festive colour scheme ;)

Hi - I sent Meredith an email too. Seems that the link closed early - I tried to add mine mid-day on Wednesday and it already showed it was closed. Is it still possible for me to link my project?

Aw, the linky list is already closed. :( I thought I made it in time. Anyway, here's my card -
