January Card Chain Challenge

2015-01I love Deborah's Card Chain Challenge.  Make a card, send it and get one from another crafter.  Deborah provides several prompts for your card, you can choose from several and use as few as one or as many as you like.

Each month includes a color palette, a sketch, and variable choices. This month included themes of snow, friendship, or Valentine's Day, as well as stencils or embossing paste. 

I chose the color palette, the sketch, and the friendship theme,


My card started with several white embossed flowers, and sentiment. Once they were fully dried I grabbed several distress inks and added color to the card front.  Once this dried, I spritzed it with pearlized water to add a subtle shimmer. I really love the color palette this month.

I also added a bit of the color combination to the inside right side.
