Two challenges

We have a color splash challenge at the Play Date Cafe for this week!  Here is the photo inspiration:


And the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a CAS card and also an envelope to match.


Here are my submissions for both challenges:

PDCC #111

PDCC111 and CAS-ual Fridays32

supplies: white and pool card stock, Memory Box "Peace Collage", versafine onyx black, Hero Arts CL562 Snowflakes, Palette Water Lily Green ink, Hero Hues sea pearls, Glossy Accents, Fiskar's Top Notch border punch


I added some glossy accents to the large snowflake on my card for a little more interest.
