Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Edit: This card won Top 3 at The Creative Cottage challenge!


Are you singing it now too! I am! It's Sunday and it's time for another Paper Sundaes Challenge! This week's theme is Something From Your Stash! The challenge is sponsored by Karen's Doodles and the design team was generously given our choice of image to use on our project! I knew I had to have this adorable image the moment I saw it. It reminds me of my daughter and my first dog I got right before I got married...a parti-colored Cocker Spaniel named Scooter! The image is called "Skating Fun" and you can find it HERE!

I printed it out and colored her and her furry friend with copics. Then I added a dose of bling with some Stickles in various colors...Frosted Lace for the ice, Lavender on the fringe of her scarf and Crystal for her mitten edge and over the color on her earmuffs! Oh how I love bling! After I chose my sketch (from Sketch For You To Try at i{heart}2stamp), I started layering it up.

I cut out a few snowflakes with my Martha Stewart punch and layered them atop each other in various combinations of the beautiful papers in this new BoBunny Winter Joy collection. Then I added a little more bling with Frosted Lace on the edges of the flakes. The centers are blingy blue snowflakes from the $1 bling that comes out every season at Michael's. Mine is from last year - hence, using something from my stash! The lavender ribbon has also spent a long time in my ribbon drawer so it was time to get it out! I love bows! All the edges of the papers are inked with Memento purple ink and that catchy little tune you can't get out of your head right now is part of the Winter Joy Cut Outs page!

  11. This card is just so gorgeous.
    I love my Promarkers but I wish I could afford Copics. They're so much brighter.
    Your colouring is superb.
