I am so excited to be able to participate in a Paper Pretties Challenge!

What a neat color combo, Christi!
I had SO much fun putting this one together. Thank you!

A couple of closeups:

Prettie ribbon and tag:

I used Barely Banana grosgrain ribbon across the front. I tied a separate bow down to the ribbon going across with some linen thread. A ruby red button was tied onto the bow with the same thread. I used the smallest die from the Scalloped Tag Shapeabilities Collection to cut out this cute little tag. Using a sponge, I added some Barely Banana to the edges. I stamped "holiday" in Ruby Red and "fun" in Not Quite Navy. The tag was added to the bow with a separate piece of linen thread.

Snowflake Kisses Sophia:

Here is darling Sophia making a snowflake angel in the snow.
Isn't she adorable?! I knew I wanted to use her for the challenge right away!
I managed to find Copics to match the Ruby Red, Barely Banana, and Not Quite Navy colors. Let's see... I used R37 first and then put a layer of RV95 over it for Ruby Red. I used Y21 for Barely Banana and B97 for Not Quite Navy. Perfect matches! :)

The big snowflakes in the background was made by stamping the large snowflake in VersaMark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I hope you like Snowflake Kisses Sophia as much as I do!

Thank you for stopping by!
