You made me SMILE!

I got to participate in SCS's Featured Stamper Challenge today. And what fun I had perusing Paula's gallery!! Her coloring is Fantastic. Thanks for the inspiration Paula!!

I chose THIS CARD because I loved how she used the pearls, and her sketch. The requirements of this challenge are: Case the Featured Stamper's Card, but change at least two things. My changes: Image, colors, sentiment, added dimension, eliminated ink distressing and sewing (I know, those are my two favorites, but I wanted to keep this card crisp and clean.

I received this darling Penny Black snowman image from my dear friend Charlene (LilLuvsStampin 0n SCS). Thanks know how I adore snowmen. And the gorgeous K&Company paper is from another dear friend, Joanne (JoJot on SCS)...she knows how I adore paper too. You guys know me so well...*grin*

The image is stamped with Smokey Gray (Versafine) and is colored with copics. I added a bit of glitter to the snow, flackes, and scarf. The border is a lace punch by Martha Stewart, and the sentiment is from Verve.

Stamps - Penny Black, Verve
Paper - K&Company, Frosted Teal, White (Prismatic), Papertrey White
Ink - Smokey Gray (Versafine)
Accessories - Copics, Nestabilties, pearls, glitter, ribbon, Border punch (Martha Stewart)

Thanks for stopping by!!
Have a blessed week, and a very Merry Christmas!!
Happy Stamping!!
