Let it Snow - CCT


LOTS OF SPARKLE
Thats the challenge on Cute Card Thursday, with Christmas just 3 months away (sorry about that) sparkle could only mean Christmas Cards and with this lovely Sugar Nellie Snowman falling through my letterbox this morning I couldn't wait to get started. There is a really Cute Stamp as candy for the winner this week and also some great cards from the DT so why not join go over there and join in.

I have decided to make my Snowman in to a Snowlady, hope he/she dosn't mind, and have coloured her with Distress Inks and lots of H20's. Papers are from last years stock, and have been matted onto blue and pink SU card, Ribbon is from this months Raspberry Ribbons kit, I have punched the snowflakes from Glitter Card which dosn't realy show up, rest from stash. I think I was a bit too eager to work with this stamp and next time will add the glitter a bit more sparingly, I don't like it around her face or on her lantern so am not to happy with the overall effect, it was going to go in the bin, but then I realised I havn't got much more of this great paper left, So!!!!
