Snowy Day

Birdie Brown is celebrating her 2nd birthday and has two challenges this month to celebrate. This card has been made for the 2nd challenge Anything Goes using a freebie from November called Snowy Day (which is still available, hop on over there to download this cutie)

I chose a sketch from The Critter Challenge for the layout and coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers adding some white gel pen to the snowflakes so they pop more.

The paper I have used is a wrapping paper from Paperchase which has silver metallic snowflakes on it. I thought I had used all this paper up but found a couple of small pieces left. It has been my most used ‘go to’ snowflake paper but it is a few years old now so don’t think I will be able to get any more

The sentiment is a freebie from Elegant Word Art by Bethany and I have cut it out using a Quickutz cookie cutter die and mounted on 3d foam, as is the image. The snowflakes are a Spellbinders to which I have added a couple of gemstones.

We have had so much snow in Birmingham last weekend and some of it still remains but I still never tire of Snowmen images and tis one is such a cutie, I can me using it again J

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – 6” x 4”
Images – Snowy Day by Birdie Brown
Sentiment – Freebie by WordArt by Bethany
Paper – Wrapping paper from Paperchase
Tools - Letraset Promarkers & Flexmarkers, Spellbinders die, Quickutz cookie cutter die, white gel pen, 3d foam
Embellishments – miscellaneous gems

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
