Snowflake Kisses

So, here is a look at the Snowflake Kisses set that will be re-released in RUBBAH tomorrow at Paper Pretties. If you didn't already know, Paper Pretties has decided to now make all their stamps in RUBBAH, which I LOVE!! We will be having our monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party tomorrow night at 6pmCDT(in other words 7pmEST). It will last until 9pm and there will be a challenge issued every hour. On top of all that, we will be chatting and having a great time, I really hope you can join us!! Also, there are still three hours left in the Cutie Pie contest, so if you planned on entering, you better get going!! You have until 8pmCDT(9pmEST) to get your cards uploaded to the Cutie Pie Submissions gallery over at Paper Pretties. The winner will receive all the new releases for this month as well as get to call themselves a Cutie Pie.
So anyway, here is my card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge. This weeks FS is Dawn(flowergal35). Her gallery is fabulous, and I chose this card to CASE. I changed the main image(Snowflake from the Snowflake Kisses set by Paper Pretties), the colors(now Bravo Burgundy, Regal Rose and Old Olive), the DP(now Paper Salon's Dazzle Strips and Snowflake, on sale in the Paper Pretties Boutique), the embellishments(now Burgundy Wide Grosgrain and Silver brads and cord from SU), and I changed the sentiment panel just a little(used SU scalloped circle punch and added the sentiment from Snowflake Kisses on top). I did some paper piercing around the pink layers on this card for some added embellishment as well. The image was colored with my SU markers and then I added some Perfect Pearls by Ranger on top of it. Isn't it CUTE!! Well, I need to head back to the stamp table....thanks for looking and have a great day!!
