Going to Leadershare!

I'm so excited to head off to Seattle tomorrow morning for CTMH Leadershare! I'm packing and checking my lists now, because we're hitting the road at 4 early to even get a yummy Peppermint Mocha at Starbucks before going. Thank goodness for Pepsi Max!

Anyhow, here's my swap card for the event tomorrow. The challenge was to make a project using only Cardstock, no special cutting or embossing systems, and nothing from the humongous retired list. CTMH must be getting ready to repackage everything, because that retired list includes all the brads, buttons, almost all the ribbons...gosh, I was getting nervous I wouldn't be able to embellish at all!

I used Grey Wool, Sorbet, Sweet Leaf, and Crystal Blue for my color pallette. The Grey CS is debossed with an embossing stylus and sanded. The Sorbet CS striped piece was hand pieced with 1/4" CS strips and debossed between the CS strips. Then I sanded the strip, stamped a scalloped border on the back using D1366 Cupcake Sprinkes, and hand punched the holes in the scallops using my Soft Set Eyelet tool. Whoooo - a bunch of work, but so pretty!

The snowflakes came from C1378 Heartfelt Christmas and D1384 Snow Flurries. I popped up the center of the large snowflake and embellished with our adorable stick on Pearls. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the result - cross your fingers for me!
