Build a Snowman

Good Morning! It's back to work after the long weekend for me. I didn't get as much stamping done as I thought I would would but did get a chance to make my card for the Sugar Challenge.

This is one of the stamps I got when I won the challenge. I think she is so cute. I should have made this card bigger than 5 x 5 though. I didn't realize how big the image was. This week the challenge was a sketch and distressing. It's hard to see my distressing around the paper but it is there. I love the blue and purple. It's really hard for me to not just pick it up for every card, especially in the winter.

I wanted to add some sparkle so I colored the snowman's hat in shimmerz, glittered the fur around her hood and put stickles on the snowflakes. I pulled out my polar white flower soft for the snow. I bought this a while ago for this purpose but keep reaching for glitter on the snow. I remembered it this time. I like the look.

Well I don't have alot of time today since I am catching up from being off yesterday. I hope everyone has a good day.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like my many layers of card! Let me know if you do. I love reading your comments.

CS: SU Bashful Blue, Almost Amethest, Papertrey White
