Glitter n Sparkle DT - Use Some Snow

Hello, everyone!  It's Sunday, and that means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! This week our challenge is Use Some Snow. I hope you can join us! I picked an adorable image for today's card - it's called Snowman Block from Eureka Stamps.  I coloured just his accessories and his nose with my Prismacolor pencils as I really like the look of black and white and just a pop of colour for his nose.   I also added clear glitter along his body and the snow.  The block is popped up with foam tape.

For the background I used my Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil with Alene's Glitter Snow and also added white glitter.  I think it turned out great!  There's lots of sparkle although it doesn't show up that well in the photos.

For the snowdrifts I used my Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders with some left-over snippets of white cardstock, and added clear glitter all along the tops.  The sentiment is a clear stamp from Newton's Nook Winter Tails.

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Use Some Snow challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week, so I hope you'll play along!
