I made this card for this week's sketch challenge at SC (SC249). I had so much fun just creating a card for fun using this adorable snowman I bought from Whiff of Joy last Christmas. I never had a chance to ink it up!! Isn't he just the sweetest?!! I paired him up with my new favorite designer paper from Basic Grey called Eskimo Kisses. I colored Herb with my Prisma color pencils and Gamsol. I embossed the panel behind him using my Cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder. He is cut out and popped on dimensionals. The baja breeze panel behind him is embossed with my leaves folder and the sky blue panel is embossed with swirls. The punch used on the bottom under the image is the EK Success Moraccan Lace Punch (This is one of the items in my blog candy). The pearls are large and come from Martha Stewarts embellishments at Michaels.




stamps: Whiff of Joy- Herb and Bird from last year's winter collection
Paper: Eskimo Kisses, Sky Blue, Baja Breeze, white
Accessories: prisma color pencils and gamsol, moraccan lace punch, nestabilities (rectangles and ovals), Snowflake, leaf and swirls embossing folders, sky blue ribbon, MS pearls, sewing machine

Thanks for stopping by today and for all your comments!! I hope you are inspired by this creation!! I sure did enjoy making it!!
