Happy Friday to you all!! Today is my chance to share with you my first card as a designer of Wags n Whiskers. Last weekend I was asked to be part of the Wags n Whiskers Team by Lacey and Nikki! I gladly accepted their offer to work with this exceptionally talented dt team and these adorable stamps.

What an exciting is Wags n' Whiskers very first challenge. The challenges will be at the Wags n Whiskers blog every Friday. Karen is hosting this weeks challenge and she would like you to "Make em Sparkle".

You must use a Wags n' Whiskers image on your card to be eligible for your chance to win your choice of a fabulous Wags n Whiskers stamp!! We don't mind you combining other challenges with ours... the more the merrier!!!

You don't own any Wags 'n Whiskers Stamps just yet?...... then click here to purchase

The adorable image I am using on my card is Zoe and Gemma's Snow Fun!!
I colored the image with Prisma Color Pencils and Gamsol. Parts of the image were stamped more than once and then adhered with dimensionals. Although it is very difficult to see in the photo, stickles was added to the snowman, hats, and snow for some added sparkle. Liquid applique was applied to the snowman's hat for added texture and interest. Many panels on the card are sewn. The circle panels are dry embossed with the Textile embossing folder from Cuttlebug. The snow flakes are felt and come from SU's Christmas Release Catalog from Last year.

Anywho.... why don't you play along?! Grab a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp...and make it sparkle and shine!!

Link it in Mr. Linky on the blog post and we will choose a winner next week. The winner will get to choose a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp of their choice and their card will be featured on the blog.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit the challenge blog for several examples from the dt. For a description on each of the cards or projects, you visit each of the dt blogs:

Thanks for stopping by today. Please stop by later at 7 a.m. EST for the Inky Impressions Blog Hop!!! The team will be sharing the brand new winter releases! As always, thanks for all your lovely comments!
