Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #39 - Snowtacular

This week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we are making cards or projects that include snow. Our prize this week is a fantastic package from:

Card Art

This was my husbands Christmas card from me. He loves snow, and wishes to move farther north when he retires, (I haven't told him yet that he'll be doing that alone, lol). My image was one of my Plum Purdy snowman. The snowmen stamps they produce are absolutely the cutest snowmen. This one had snow on his hat, and I added snow onto his nose and scarf. For the base of my card and also the red nestibility I used the new glitter paper by Best Creation. I also added 2 colors of glitter to his scarf to match the paper. I colored the snowman with my Derwent pencil crayons and mineral spirits. I used my clear glitter on the snowballs and dripping snow at the top of his hat. I added some ribbon I found at Michaels and a beautiful snowflake brad. I placed the card in my tree for an added wintery feel. Hope you like it, I know hubby did.
Hugs xx
Hope everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday.
