SOS180 - Snowy Postcard

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to use your favorite technique.
I love to play with inks and sponges so that's what I did. I used Snowy Postcard stamp from Stampendous.
I used Distress Inks and Pool Party SU ink for sponging and I covered the whole middle oval with Iridescent Ice EP for extra shine. The ribbon started as white seam binding and I sprayed it with brown and gold Shimmer spray.
Sentiment is from Stampin Up.

Challenges:
Love to Create - Non-Traditional Christmas Colors
House of Cards - Inspiration Image - Inspired by colors
Challenge Up Your Life - Turquoise & Brown
Open Minded Crafting - Unusual Christmas

I do like sponging colors all over my cards. Pool Party is so pretty with the brown! And adding shiny to the oval is perfect.
