Yesterday, I was able to spend the day with some of my best crafty friends for our monthly Crafty Saturday. Not a bad way to wrap up a vacation at all. Here is my card to play along with the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

I took my inspiration from more than just the colors for the current Color Throwdown. I was inspired by the sparkle and shine in the picture as well. Glittery colorful snowflakes are lots more fun than the snowflakes currently falling outside. (I know, it’s December. And I’d truly rather have this than 90 degrees, but still…)
