Let it Snow

Hello, Thanks for dropping by!  Today I have a card that I've created for The Stamping Boutique monthly challenge - Winter/Holiday.  I won this stamp in one of their other challenges and think she's just adoarable! Her name is KK.  I coloured her with my prismacolors and blended some of the darker blue into the background to make it look more like snow swirling about her.  I just love it when the flakes glitter in the sunlight as they're blown around. I inked the edges and matted it on some cardstock.  I lpopped it up on some fun snowflake paper, then I added some silver and blue ribbon tied together. For a final touch I tucked in three let it snow tickets from Scribbles by Sandy (They are matted on cardstock with the edges distressed.).  I did add some silver glitter, it doesn't show in the picture, but when the light hits it, the snowflakes sparkle.
The forecast here is calling for snow and I can't wait! Those crazy carpets of ours are all ready to hit the slopes!
Supplies:
Stamps:  KK - Stamping Boutique; Tickets - Scribbles by Sandy
Papers:  Misc snowflake; Stampin' Up cardstock
Ink:  Colour Box - royal blue
Tools:  Decorative scissors- Rockies; Prismacolor pencils w/ baby oil
Accessories:  Blue ribbon- Esprit; Misc silver ribbon; DecoArt Twinkles Writer - silver
