Speedy's Friends -Mark's Finest Papers, EtsyInspired Challenge, Anything Goes Challenge Blog


I am using my favorite stamp of all time. I love snowmen and there is something about this one that sends me into a happy dance. Actually, I am just using part of the image. This time I wanted to cut out only the wind-blown snowman and pop him up. I also stamped the image again on Night of Navy and wet embossed  the scarf with white embossing powder and popped it on. I have dry embossed snowflakes on silver mirror paper and it really embosses so well.  I rather like my scrunchy ribbon, too. Added a sentiment that I thought was just perfect and that's it.

I am entering my card into these three challenges:
Speedy's Friends --Mark's Finest Papers Challenge #29-Use a snowflake on your card (I  think I got that covered).
Anything Goes Challenge Blog #24-Emboss It

EtsyInspired Challenge #114 -My inspiration was  this necklace. It reminded me of a scrunchy ribbon, which I added to my card.

Recipe:

Recollections stamp for sentiment
Paper: Stampin'Up! Night of Navy, silver paper from Hobby Lobby, PTI white cardstock
Ink: Night of Navy
Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder-Snowflakes, RibbonFX in navy, white embossing powder, VersaMark Dazzle Frost
