PIO Challenge And Giveaway

Good morning everyone!

Hope your new year is off with a great start! Mine has been a bit challenging with some on going computer issues….BUT this I know…..ALL things work together for the good of those that love HIM. So I know that in spite of it all, The Lord has a plan and a purpose for everything we encounter!

Here is my project for a design team that I am on. Pile It On or PIO!

This team means a lot to me. When I first started actively blogging back in May, I discovered this whole challenge world - thing. I didn’t know it even existed! So I threw my hat into the ring when there was a design team call and much to my great joy…I got picked Smile

Dalis is the Brains behind PIO. She works tirelessly behind the scenes to bring the challenges that we all enjoy!

You can visit PIO by following these links and you can also visit Dalis's personal blog: Dalis’s Blog

So Here is my project for today!
flakes card-450

flakes side shot-450

I made this card using a digital stamp that I created and colored it in with my Copic Markers. I then outlined the snowgirls with a bit of stickles.
I used the Winter Lace Cartridge to cut out the snowflakes. The smaller ones I cut at 1” and the larger ones were 1.25 and 1.5 inches.

The challenge at FCCB this week was to make a project with snow or snowflakes on it.

The challenge at PIO was make a project with something that is brand spankin’ new. So the digi image and the Winter Lace cartridge are both two new things :-)

Here are some additional challenges that my card applies to :-)
