Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Show us Some Snow

Hello, friends.  There's a brand-new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week's theme is a fun one:  Show us Some Snow.   I was excited to get my DT image, not only because it's so cute, but also because I have a young friend who loves ducks, so I already know who will be getting this card.  This digi is called Danny and Delilah's Sled Ride and it's from Inky Impressions, one of our generous sponsors.

Here's a close-up of the digi that I coloured with my Prismacolor pencils.  After the pic below was taken, I added Icicle Stickles to the snow and snowflakes.

I created a circle frame around the coloured image by inserting it into a CD envelope, which I sponged with turquoise ink (Ancient Page) and stamped repeatedly with a cluster of tiny snowflakes (source unknown).  For the base of the card I stamped two snowflakes (Inkadinkado, The Old Island Stamp Company) repeatedly on turquoise cardstock. 

The sentiment is a freebie from Desert Diva and I die-cut into an oval with my Nellie's Multiframes.  I used several other dies here too:  fawn (Marianne Design), snowflake sprig and Rizza snowflake (both Memory Box).  The dies were all birthday gifts last month from my BF Brian  - thank you!  The little snowman charm is from Stamp and Create.  The gem snowflakes are from Darice; the gems are from JoAnn's, and the ribbon, glittery tree, snowflakes, and "Holiday Cheer" brad are all from Dollarama. 

I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Show us Some Snow challenge - as usual, we have some great prizes up for grabs, thanks to our generous sponsors:

Inky Impressions - $10 gift certificate 
Sassy Studio Designs - 4 images

Oh Kitty, what an awesome card you have created for your little duck loving friend it's so chirpy and I love the frozen winter scene that you have created with all the sparkle and blue colouring. I think those little ducks will be sledging for a long time to come. Once again you have created a very special card that is pure joy to see.... and, in this case is perfect for our BINGO challenge. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team).
