A Winter Dance


I am thrilled to be the hostess for this week's challenge over on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge blog.  I chose a color challenge of  "Winter Blues", which challenges you to use blues in your creation this week.  And, I thought the title of the challenge was quite appropriate.  I have the winter blues.  I am so ready for summer, I'll admit it.

For my card, I used a digital image from the Sassy Cheryl's "A Winter Dance" set.  I must say, these two adorable snowman don't have the winter blues at all.  They are enjoying shoveling of all things, LOL. 

Anyway, I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  I sponged around the edges of the image panel with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue and framed it with some black cardstock. 

I lightly stamped some snowflakes from Stamps by Judith into the scene with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky blue. 

The sentiment is from There She Goes and thought it was a nice match to the image.  The larger card panel has a strip of patterned paper from The Paper Studio.

The blue rhinestone is from the cover of my 2013 calendar.  Might as well get some use out of it now, right?

I wish I could embrace winter like these two cuties, but I'm just not feeling it, LOL. 

Have a great week, and try to play along in the challenge.  Free digis are up for grabs to the winner.
