Snow Much Fun

Hi there!  Happy New Year!  Hope you all had a fun New Year's Eve and your 2013 is off to a great start!  It's been raining all day and it's made for a bit of a lazy time around here, but tomorrow, it's back to the normal, hectic pace, so I'm enjoying the quiet day.  I'm popping in quickly to share I card I made for a couple of challenges I like to do.  It is for Elphine House Australia Challenge #34 (snow swirled, with an Elisabeth Bell image), Friday Sketch Challenge #33 (sketch) and Cute Card Thursday #249 (anything goes).

Here is FSC-33:

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Blue Bayou and the patterned papers are from the Carta Bella Winter Fun 6x6 pad.  My fun Elisabeth Bell image is Belles 'n Whistles Snow Fight Snowbaby.  I won this cute stamp from Crafts and Me awhile back.  I stamped it on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added Crystal Snow to the pom pom on her hat and Polar White Flower Soft to the snowball and ground.  The sentiment was generously offered as a freebie by Jane on her blog here.  I colored in the letters with Copics.  I added a bunch of snowflakes punched from glitter paper with gems in their centers to finish my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to be back to a regular routine of card-making and blogging in the next day or so.  I will definitely be by to visit you then!

Have a great evening!
