October SoG Challenge

Some Odd Girl posted their October challenge yesterday - another sketch challenge!  Yay!  I love sketch challenges the best.

Since its starting to cool off here in the Midwest especially at night I thought I'd get a jump on wintry cards.  I used my newly purchased Snowball Tia from SoG and a few other crafty items in my rather messy craft room to come up with this card:

The snowflake is Damask Snowflakes die from PTI.  The hounds tooth is the BB: Hounds Tooth smaller pattern also from PTI.  The color scheme is white and Marina Mist (SU!).  I spritzed the snowflake with Vanilla Shimmer, Silver and Blue smooch spritz (SU!) to give it some sparkle.
The sentiment is from Winter Friends (SoG) and I stamped it on the smaller of the Double Banner die cut (PTI).  I hand cut the banner layer.

Copic Deets:
