A Bit Late for the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

I finishes my Sketch Challenge around midnight last night, posted it on SplitCoastStampers and shut the computer down. I was just too excited to post the Santa Nugget box that getting the challenge done in time and on the blog was secondary!!! I like the nugget box much better than I do this card. It was a VERY fun challenge and as I was looking at the submissions on SplitCoast today I can see a LOT of wonderful cards!!!

I did follow the sketch but I flipped it. I just felt the snowman (of course ANOTHER snowman card!!! LOL) should face the wording. And speaking of the wording, I did it on the computer and then punched it out using the 1-1/4" punch and for the black layer I used the 1-3/8" punch. That part was EXTREMELY easy to do.

I used the Cuddlebug snowflake folder for the background and the snowman is from the "Jolliest Time of the Year" set. I just LOVE that set. I used some white craft ink on a sponge on top of the snowflakes but it doesn't show up very well. And being it's a more oily ink the tape didn't want to stick so I had to glue the pieces in place. As I was gluing this I thought to myself, "No one will know." Now that I've told the world!!! LOL Ok, ok, ok, I GLUED THE PIECES!!!! But one thing is for sure, they're not going to fall off!!! LOL

So here it is in all it's glory, my Wednesday Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge!!

Cute. That was my first thought too when I seen the sketch but I don't have any current snowmen so I changed mine. You did a great job on this.

You know, I didn't really like the look of this sketch when I saw it posted, but I like what you've done with. I just might have to try it myself.
