Roses on Paper DT Challenge #3

We're expecting more snow here in Maine in a couple of days. While sledding is more along my tastes if I have to be outside, most people up here love to snowboard or ski. My good friend, Lynn, takes a couple of the students she teaches to one of our local ski resorts every Sunday in January and sits inside the lodge and either knits or cross stitches while the kids are given lessons and skis. She's trying to figure out how to stamp this year but that's still a project in process! I think this could possibly be something like what her view at the slopes would be from where she sits.

I'm hosting the The Roses on Paper Design Team challenge for the next two weeks and the colors are white, evergreen and grape. The winner will receive a $12 gift certificate to Roses on Paper where I got my Magnolia stamps. You can find all the details on the Design Team Challenge Blog. Make sure you stop by the other Roses o Paper Design Team blogs to see what they've done with the Challenge! Their blogs are listed on my right sidebar.

I used Tilda Skiing, Edwin Skiing and Spruce Background, Shamrock Green Flower Soft, and Grape and Leaves Dew Drops. The white specialty paper is from The Paper Company and the green leaves is from the new Animal stack from DCWV, and my SU ticket punch.

Hope you enjoy them! I'm off to get my hot cocoa and then off to work after a very busy holiday break. Hope everyone is having a great 2009!

Great card Susan. Thank you for setting up a great challenge this week. Very difficult for me - since I had a hard time to find matching DPs in these colours ;-) Kram - Anki

Hi Susan,
You have made a beautiful card! Love your use of the green flower soft - it makes a great background! I am wondering if your leafy background paper came with sparkles on it or if you made it that way?
