TJ Blogstravaganza meets Bloggers Challenge & CPS Sketch

Happy Black Friday! I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving. There's a lot going on in my post today - as I'm multitasking...It's Friday, and that means it's time for my Bloggers Challenge post. Keeping with my TJ Blogstravaganza posts, I've combined that and the CPS sketch with my BC post for today. My card uses two new techniques from the 12/08 TJNL - Faux Designer Paper and Masked Frames - both yield some great results!

I strayed just a bit from the CPS Sketch, and I know this is not your typical colors for a Holiday Card, but I'm happy with the overall outcome. This weeks Bloggers Challenge was to find inspiration from the piece shown below..

I started out creating my Faux Designer paper with images from Innovative Stamp Creations - MiniBook Series - Photo Negative, Really Rust and VersaMagic Jumbo Java Inks. The sentiment and snowflakes using
the Masked Frames Technique are from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods Plate.
