Barry's Snowman

Good morning!  Today the card I have to share was a fun one to combines lots of challenges!  Yesterday I printed the sketch for the challenge at SCS and used that as a starting point.

The image I used is a digital stamp from Stamp Fairy; I think Barry and his little snowman are adorable!  The image is colored with pencils and accented with 2 kinds of glitter; subtle glitter for Barry's hat and glitter with a bit more sparkle for the snow/snowflakes.  I used some Spellbinder's dies for the snowflakes, and then coated the white ones with glitter.  As I was making a mess, I thought of my glitter paper!  Hmmm, why do I usually forget to use it?   LOL  I added a brad to the middle of the snowflakes and elevated them with a dimensional.

Image: Stamp Fairy Digital Stamp
Ink: Printer, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Basic Gray, KI Memories DP
Embellies: Spare Parts Brads, Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust"
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Dies, SU! Dimensionals

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Shopping Our Stash: All that Glitters, Sparkles, or Shines
Tuesday Throwdown: Baby It's Cold Outside

I have to say it is fun to look through the challenges and see which ones I can combine to make a really makes me think!

Thanks for stopping by today!
