Be sure to enter a card and then spell out the secret word with our blog hop by visiting everyone's blog. Be sure to follow the order on the JUGS blog to create the secret word.

I would like to welcome our guest designer for October, Selma Stevenson
Now onto my card for this week's challenge. I got to play with a new set from PTI, Peace Be Still. I used some patterned paper from MY TIME MADE EASY. I really like how it turned out and I love the color combo too.
I ebmossed the snowflakes with clear embossing powder to make them pop!
