The Color Throwdown #167 and Sketch Saturday

Hi there!  I'm back really quick to share the card I made for two challenges: Sketch Saturday #180 and Color Throwdown #167.  I had my card almost all done earlier in the week, but set it aside and forgot to come back and finish it.  Thankfully, I got it done before the deadlines this time - lol!

Here is the Sketch Saturday sketch:


And here is the Color Throwdown swatch:


Here is my card for both challenges:

I started with a card base of SU Pool Party and layered with patterned papers from the Basic Grey Mistletoe & Pears and Eskimo Kisses collections.  I merged these two darling Mo Manning images called Kai in the Snow and Snowman.  They can be found in Mo's store here.  I just love the expression of joy on Kai's face in this one!  I printed the merged image and colored it with Copics.  I added some Snow Glitter to the pom poms on both hats and some Polar White Flower Soft for the falling snow and snow on the ground.  I wove some pink gingham ribbon through the fancy border cut with a Spellbinders Parisian Accents die and added a triple-loop bow.  The corner element is also from Parisian Accents.  A few adhesive pearls on the diecuts finished my card.

Thanks for coming by again!  I really appreciate it!  Enjoy the rest of your day and the weekend!
