PTI September Blog Hop and Mojo Monday 207

This is my first participation in the Papertrey Blog Hop.  This month we have to use the inspiration photo below.

 I am also using this week's Mojo Monday 207 sketch. 

I started with making my background paper using a stamp from Mad for Plaids and multiple ink colors.  Lately I've made lots of different patterned paper using inspiration from the PTI Make it Mondays.  The snow man and tree are from Holiday Tags.  I colored them using Copics and a Tombow marker.  I've had lots of fun finding ways to use the Snowflake die trio.  For this card, I embossed it with white embossing powder and accented it with a button and baker's twine.  I hope you enjoy.

 I don't think I've ever made a card with as many layers as the one above.  I had to balance out all that layering with a clean and simple card.  This card is also inspired by the PTI Blog Hop photo.  In this card, I made 4 rows of colors using Washi Tape (summer collection).  I added a simple sentiment from Celebrate in Style.
