One card, 4 challenges!

This week I designed a card that would multi-task for 4 challenges (I'm learning!).

My Time to Craft is up to their 100th challenge this week and the theme is "check it out".
PaperCutz Challenge Challenge #52 is celebrating their first year of challenges. This week was a color challenge: only red, black, yellow, blue and white were allowed.
Winter Wonderland challenge was no designer/patterned paper allowed.
Christmas Cards All Year Round August challenge is snowflakes.

This is how I met these 4 challenges:

For the checked requirement from My Time to Craft, I made a checker pattern using the color requirements of PaperCutz and this also met the Winter Wonderland challenge of no DP. The vertical lines are rub-on glitter sheets. I didn't have any black rub-on glitter for the horizontal lines, so I used black flocking - then I found my black rub-on glitter - ain't that the way? LOL! The Christmas Cards All Year Round snowflakes were done with Dreamweaver white embossing paste and glitter. I sealed the snowflakes and check pattern with Krylon Glaze spray so the glitter/ flocking won't rub off. I finished the card off with a sentiment stamped in black, red and white shimmer paper and blue brads!
Thanks again for stopping by!
