die cutting machine necessary! 
Go check them out now!
Here's my card for this challenge...
I used Fun With Frosty and that gave me
so many options to choose from! Such super
cute ideas! I printed out my images, on 
ivory cardstock, and colored them with 
Copic markers and a touch of sparkle pen. 
The background is a delightful sparkly cardstock 
that I had on hand. 
I raised the snowman for dimension. 

I used another image from the set 
to finish off the card. I used the ivory
cardstock for the base so it would blend
well with the pattern paper. The photo
doesn't show the glimmer from the 
paper or sparkle pen very well, but it
looks awesome in person. 
The Cutting Café offers so many ideas
and all you really need is paper, printer
and scissors. It's a great place for the 
minimalist card makers.

PIP Challenge 2344

 Another great challenge over at PIP Challenges
with our lovely sponsor
Varada Sharma
VS has such beautiful images! It's 
awesome that she is kind enough to sponsor 
PIP Challenges! Please be sure to visit her site!!
 Here's my card for this week!
I used "Lotus Frame" from Varada Sharma. I 
chose a different sentiment from a VS set I
have. She has such beautiful creations!! I took the 
PNG images and added it to some digital paper
I had. I printed the image twice and colored
the main flower, using Copics, on both. I 
fussy cut out one of the flowers. I layered it
on top of the main cardfront, off-set a bit.
I used a white gel pen to add some random
dots to finish off the card. 

Thanks for stopping by!!
