Snow Wonderful

So, when I saw this weeks Inspiration Challenge, I REALLY tried not to go to far out in left field. I was gonna do something with the colors and pattern, but I ended up just using the snowman that THIS NECKLACE (from the Etsy store, Images Under Glass) made me think of. I used my new Verve Stamps set, Snow Wonderful(which is on sale right if you have been looking, here ya go!!)!! It has been DAYS since I stamped, so I was starting to REALLY miss it!! I love my nephew, but man, he is a TIME SUCKER(basically he SUCKS up all my free time, LOL)!! I started with some paper that was left out on my table, cause it was there, and I love it, and I was too lazy to look for other stuff,heheh. I used Ruby Red, Garden Green and Baja Breeze to go along with it. The snowman was stamped with Black Stazon and then colored with my SU markers. I did add some Sakura Stardust Glitter pen to the scarf and band on the hat. The sentiment is from the Verve set, Snowflake Splendor. It was stamped and then punched out with my SU square punches. I followed Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday sketch except I just had my ribbon go around the little panel and I added the brads and snowflake. The snowflake was made with my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch and the brads are from SU, as well as the ribbon. I did run the white layer through my Cuttlebug with the Snowflakes folder just to give it a little more interest. Since I like this card well enough, I am off to mass produce about 9 more....awww, the joys of Christmas!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
