Snowy Days

I got a chance this week to play in the Papertrey challenge for the week. This week's challenge was a sketch created by Kim. First, I decided upon the colors and then I started cutting layers. I like aqua mist and spring moss for winter cards. All the white layers are white shimmer cardstock. I love the shimmer it adds to the card without doing anything extra.

Here you can kind of see the shimmer on the snowman. I stamped him first on white shimmer cardstock. Then, I stamped the scarf and hat on spring moss cardstock. I cut them out and added them to my snowman. Then, I cut out my snowman. I added some liquid applique and fun flock to my snowman's hat. Then, I stamped the snowman's arms on my aqua mist patterned paper and added my snowman using foam dimensional adhesive.
Have a great weekend! I need to get back to cleaning and getting ready for the party tomorrow. Why, oh why, do I put everything off until the day before the party?! lol
