PP169 & Kards for Kids

I really like the sketch this week from Paper Players so decided to play along.  The Smiley Team from Kards for Kids are making winter themed cards for the children so I decided to incorporate the sketch for a card for a child at the Hospital for Sick Children here in Toronto.

Here is the sketch:

Here is the card I created using the sketch:

I love glitter and bling so added a bit of both to this card.  The card base is pearlized silver and I also used it to back up the design paper which is from Recollections - a Michaels brand.  I also cut the snowflakes from the same pearlized silver paper using an Impression Obsession die.  I cut some tags from silver glitter paper.  I think the royal blue card stock from Bazill goes very well with the rest of the card.  I love the combination of silver and royal blue.  The sentiment was stamped with Color Box - Archival Silver is from Gina K - Snowman Wishes.  I'm not entirely pleased with this card and I will be changing it to include a grey die cut which I will pop up with foam dots onto the design paper.  To me, this card looks kinda bare.  I also added the silver coloured ribbon with the white snow flakes and some flat back rhinestones.

Here is my revised version of this card:

Much better, don't you think?
Thanks for stopping by!

I really like how the silver accents pop off of that rich blue. Very pretty! Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players!
