June 2020 Week 3 theme challenge of snowflakes for no 23 at 52 CCT blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart is super excited to share this great trifecta of a Christmas card! At 52 Christmas Card Throwdown each week of the month (we take 5th weeks off) the challenges rotate. Week 1 is a sketch. Week 2 is a color(s). Week 3 is a theme or recipe. Week 4 is a technique or a stash. This is Week 3 and as hostess I picked "snowflakes" to be the theme.

The trifecta is that I used Week's 1 sketch, Week's 2 color trio, and Week's 3 snowflakes theme. The combination has made a very glamorous non-traditional Christmas card!

Please note:
It is my desire to combine the previous June challenges together for my #23-20 design team project. I wanted to see if I could creatively put together a card from items out of my stash without going out and buying something new.

This is not a blog requirement. This is just my own creative motivation for this week. Here are the 2 previous June challenge badges in case you've just discovered my blog or 52 CCT blog (or have forgotten due to the craziness of modern life!)=

below: the sketch layout that was to be followed for June Week 1=

Supply notes:
a. purple cardstock base = Neenah
b. patterned paper = bought in a 3 set paper pad at Dollar Tree
c. the 3 different sized pink and/or purple stickers are from a Sticker Book by Pen + Gear/Walmart
d. snowflake-type medallions = I think were bought at Dollar Tree; due to their slick plastic surface, the card shifted on the scanner glass! ugh....
e. gold glitter decorative tape = ?
f. the pink modern script lettering stickers = were bought at Dollar Tree
