A Blinged Up Snowy Blast!

Anyway, I got up this morning eager to do some stamping and then a neighbor needed a ride to town... so I'm off to a late start, but I made this card for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. Anne (jdmommy) had originally inspired Roxi's choice and I just had a blast with it!

The image is Impression Obsession and is stamped with Memento onto Neenah CS and colored with Copics. I masked the scene and sponged the sky with Bordering Blue and Brocade Blue, then some Memento London Fog. The base of the card is SU! Kraft (thanks again to Dawn). The designer paper is The Paper Studio and the blue is Bazzill Textured.

I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot EF and added Fun Flock to the pom poms. There are Dazzling Diamonds on the snow lines. The pearl flourishes are from ZVA and will soon be available from Our Daily Bread designs Store. I added some blingy snowflakes from my stash.

Hope you enjoyed this wintry blast! I have a passion for snowmen and just hope we get a little snow here so I can go play in it!!! LOL!

Have a wonderful day!
