Inspired By...YOU! IB200

For their end-of-year challenge, Inspired By... is challenging us to make a card influenced by one of 2021 weekly winners.  There were a couple of cards I really wanted to CASE but I decided on Silke's October winner in the I'd Fall for You challenge.  

I took away the following elements to incorporate into my card:  I love Sile's layout.  I knew I wanted use 1) the highlight circle to the left of the card.  2) The width-length sentiment used to ground the images.  3) The subtle "falling" items.  I also love 4) Silke's use of My Favorite Things characters.  The card came together quickly.  I used MFT's STAX stitched dome dies for the highlight focus; die cut from Memory Box paper.  The stamped sentiment is from MFT's Bitty Thanks and Gratitude, layered atop Memory Box paper.  The snowmen are from MFT's Christmas Cuteness; stamped, die cut, and Copic colored.  Falling from the top of the card are about a dozen snowflakes created using an ancient Marvy Uchida punch.

Thanks for the inspiration Silke!
