It's Sunday again, so that means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! Our theme this week is your favourite and mine: Anything Goes! I hope you can join us!
Before I go any further, I would like to say that the winner of my candy draw will be announced next Sunday, in conjunction with the winner's announcement over at Glitter n Sparkle, so stay tuned! It could be you!
My card today features a sweet Snowman from Ike's Art. Sometimes I like to use an image from my own stash for my DT card and that's what I'm doing today! I won this cutie from Ike in one of her challenges a few weeks ago and was eager to get it onto a card! I decided to go with a purple colour scheme so I can support Becca's The Hop to Stop, a blog hop designed to raise awareness about domestic violence, an issue that impacts one in four women, and the resources that are available to assist victims of domestic violence.
I coloured the Snowman with Prismacolor pencils and then fussy-cut so I could pop him up with foam tape. I added Sparkle N Sprinkle Inference Violet Semi-Transparent Glitter on the white parts of his hat and a tiny purple gem to his poinsettia. You may think I created the sky myself but this is actually a digital paper I found in my stash from Fred She Said - Purple Pansies Set. I love the ombre look! I heat embossed the sentiment in white (sorry I don't know the source of this stamp - I won it in some candy from Avril a couple years ago - thank you, Avril, I love this stamp!). I added some Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes for the snowdrifts (cut from left-over snippets) and lots of Liquid Pearls to represent the falling snow.
Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Anything Goes challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week!
And please check out The Hop to Stop to support this important issue.
