Building a Snowman

Have you ever had one of those times when you know what you want to create but one element isn't quite right?  This card was one of those.  I have been working on it for days but couldn't find a paper to fit what I had in mind.  Then, at 11pm last night, I found what I was looking for.  First thing this morning, I was up and eager to create:

The card will be entered into the following challenges:
Fresh Brewed Designs - Anything Goes
Tuesday Alchemy - Inspiration Photo
Pinspirational Challenge
Love to Create - Sparkle and snowflakes
Broken Box Stock - Winter/Snowflakes
Papertake Weekly - Baby, It's cold outside

The wonderful paper that I mentioned above comes from Decossé's Dynamite Doodles.  You can find it here:
The image that I have used is called Building a Snowman and it comes from Fresh Brewed Designs.  I have coloured the image with copic markers and die-cut using my new Wonky Squares die from Spellbinders.  The glittery snowflake is also a Spellbinders die and has been cut from some glitter cardstock by DCWV.  I have added a pearl to the centre of the snowflake and raised the image up to give the card some dimension.

Fresh Brewed Designs also has a blog hop coming up soon:

  3. I LOVE THIS CARD!!! it is so soft and pretty! I think we have all had those 'not quite right' moments! I am so glad that you found the paper you were looking for. I had to really look at it, because the snowflakes really do appear to pop off of the page! GORGEOUS!!!
