Wednesday Sketch Challenge

I can not believe it's Wednesday already. The time is just flying lately! I didn't even get through all of the Halloween stuff I wanted to and now Thanksgiving is just a little over 2 weeks away! I can't believe that either.

Anyway, this is the card I made for the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers. I bought this "Too Much Snow" stamp from Plum Purdy Stamps last year and I used it once. I ran across it when I was looking for a snowman to use on this sketch. I always thought he was cute.

For my card I actually cut out the hat, nose and scarf and layered them on using Dimensionals. I was a bit upset with myself for touching the branch under the bird. I smudged the ink. I suppose you didn't notice it until I pointed it out to you, right? LOL

This card was fun to do and not to bad to put together. I LOVE the background paper. It came in a BIG pack from Michael's called "Wonderful Winter." It's glitter paper and there are SO many beautiful papers in that pack. I'll be playing with more of them later this month!

I did use the Stampin' Up! "Simple Snowflake" stamp and the snowflake punch. And I stamped the snowflake image in Chocolate Chip. Such a traditional snowflake color, isn't it?

I had to laugh. As I was getting my card ready to post on here I thought the snowman looked odd. Something was missing but I just couldn't place it. Then I looked over at my worktable and there were these two stick arms sitting there. I forgot to add the arms to the poor guy!! The arms came from a snowman punch by Martha Stewart. It's SO darn cute. You get all the pieces to it too!! I'll make a snowman with it soon and show you how cute it really is!

This was a very fun sketch. There aren't too many I don't find fun. The square ones I find VERY challenging because the require me to step outside my box of traditional size cards.

I was so glad I got to play with this set again. Now back to work on the "things" I was working on before the email came in telling me the sketch was posted!
