Wintery Ski Layout for Die-Namites

Today am sharing a wintery ski-themed layout I created for Die-Namites Dies.  My husband and I took a mid-week ski day last year and had a wonderful time!  It was a beautiful day and we practically had the slopes to ourselves.  We would ski from the top of the run straight onto the lift!  It was a magical day!

I was inspired by the Die-Namites January Sketch & Dare Challenge!  Here is the sketch designed by DT member Tonya:

These are the dies I used on my project:


The dare this month is to use the color pink, however, I decided to go with a different color scheme for my ski pictures and I just used the sketch for inspiration.  I had picked up the Cozy Collection from Authentique at the local scrapbook store and couldn't wait to use it! 

You can see that I replaced the 3 roses from the sketch with die cut Winter Fir trees:
I used the Fancy Chipboard Word "Magical" from Want2Scrap for the sentiment.  Instead of using the one big banner indicated on the sketch, I used 3 small banners and shifted them off to the side. I found this trio of small banners on the Cozy Components Cardstock Accents. Perfect!

The sketch shows a doily centered under the cluster of roses. I tucked a Spring Doily die cut behind the pics in the upper right of the layout.  I used all of the elements from Tonya's sketch, I just rearranged them a bit!

To create a "frosty" feeling on the layout I covered the doily and the fir trees with Stardust Stickles and sprinkled rhinestones from Want2Scrap on the background snowflakes.

So how would you like to play along with our challenge?
Rememeber: This month's dare is to use something PINK!

  6. You have until the last day of the month to post your creation on your blog and link up to this post.  **PLEASE add a link to your direct post, not your entire blog.**

    for each entry into the challenge. 
 A random winner will be chosen from eligible participants for a
