Happy Saturday everyone! It's a beautiful day here in Kansas City. For the last of January, the weather is beautiful. Yesterday's rain/snow was a non-event for those of us here the Kansas City area.
Yesterday while blog hopping, I found several challenges that I wanted to participate in. I have had this image from Lili of the Valley stamped and the only thing that was colored was the little guys face. So with my thoughts towards three challenges, I explored some ideas online and made this card.
The stamp is from Lili of the Valley and it is stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with Copics. The sentiment stamp is from Sweet and Sassy and it is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink.
The card base is a rich brown from Bazzill and so is the aqua card stock. The base card is 5 3/4 inches square. The designer paper is from Bo Bunny's 6 x 6 paper pad called snow fall. I've used Martha Stewart punches for the snowflake border and another Martha Stewart snowflake punch for the snowflake in the upper left hand corner of the page. The stamped image and sentiment were both pop dotted to give dimension to the card. Crystal Stickles was added to the snowflakes punches and to the snow in the stamped image. My photography does not show it very well, but little pearls are in every other snow flake on the border. I've used a brown ribbon which is bordered in silver also on the card.
Here's a list of challenges I'm entering with this card:
