Waltzingmouse June Christmas Card Challenge

Hello!  I am back with my card for the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge.  Wow!  Two posts in one day, mighty unusual for me.  To see my card for the A Muse Studio Challenge, just scroll down.

Jen Treadway is our hostess this month.  She challenges us to create a snowy scene, use snowflakes, snowmen, glittery paper, or some puffy, snow-like embellishments.

I did not know what I was going to do.  I put it off and put it off, until yesterday.  Then I saw this card by Cindy Hall.  Cindy turned me on to this video by Sue Gillespie on how to create a starburst card.  I love it!  After playing around with the technique, I decided I would create a "snowburst" card.  This is what I came up with:

I love how it turned out!  I made a few adjustments because my card was a square and I wanted to cover more of it with the "snowburst."  Easy to do and what a great way to use coordinating patterned papers! And the pretty white lace - I think it looks like a row of snowflakes.

A new challenge will be issued on the 10th of each month in the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenges Forum.  If you're not already a forum member, it's easy and free to sign up.  The guidelines are also posted in the forum - right here.

I hope you join us!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
