Friends to the End

Good morning!  We have a new challenge for you from Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight Denise has chosen our challenge and she would like to see "Pearls, Flowers, and Charms".  Hmmm, I do have to say that this was indeed a challenge for me!  I had to think "out of the box" a bit....

I went with a fun set from Doodle Pantry, Snowman Pile-Up; it includes line art, pre-colored images, sentiments, and DP...everything you need!  I went with a pre-colored image, a sentiment, and 2 of the DPs.  After printing the elements, I did a bit of layering and added my embellishments; a "flurry" of pearls for snow, a white felt "loopy bloom" flower embellished with a snowflake charm and pearl.  It was fun to see if I could make this challenge work for a winter card!  I also added some glitter to the image, but I didn't capture the sparkle with my is pretty in real life!

Stamp Set: Doodle Pantry Snowman Pile-up
Ink: Printer
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Stamper's Select and True Black, Doodle Pantry DP
Embellies: Recollections Pearls, Making Memories Snowflake, Doodlebug Glitter
