MTSC Happy Holidays

Happy Hump Day Peeps!

Today's card is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I have to say I took a few liberties with the sketch, hope you don't mind Mercy. {wink} I used a circle instead of an oval, I will be getting the oval nesties this week, and then I flipped the sketch, putting my image on the opposite side. I hope it still qualifies for the sketch!!!

For this card I used the fun hostess set "Snow Buddies" a level 2 from the mini. I am so loving this set, I have another card to show you with this set later in the week!!!

My card is a 5 inch square. I used regal rose, real red and whisper white cardstock. The DS paper and the sentiment, which is a sticker, is from an old retired Simply Scrapping kit, Winter Bright.

I stamped the snowman onto whisper white and then used my circle nestie to cut it out. I left the nestie in place and then sponged some bashful blue ink around the snow "girl"! I colored in her scarf and hat with my regal rose marker. I added some star dust stickles to the side of her and used my white gel pen to add some snowflakes and dots to the hat. I used a bit of liquid applique for the top of the hat. I mounted the image to the base with some dimensionals. I added some regal rose ribbon and some white brads.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
