NEW BUGABOO FORMAT -- ATG SATURDAY BIWEEKLY CHALLENGE -- APRIL 3, 2021

Happy Saturday, friends!  I'm back on the blog to share my card for today, which is the start of the NEW Catch the Bug challenge format.  Tammy explained the changes in this post, so make sure you go check it out.  Now here's my card:

 
Saturday challenges are now always ATG, so I chose to use this Snowman Snowflakes image to get going on my Christmas card supply.  I wanted the image to be prominent on my card, so I printed it fairly large, and kept the layout simple.  The cardstock and patterned paper come from my favorite Recollections Christmas paper pack from a few years ago called Winter Frost.  I colored the snowman using alcohol markers to match the frosty blue tones.  White gel pen details were added to the patches, and Star Dust Stickles accents the snow and the snowflakes on the string he is holding.  It didn't take me too long to put this card together, which is good, because I was running late!  Here are a couple more pics:

Until next time,
