SSSC145......Merry Christmas Snowman

Good Morning Peeps!!!
It is Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the SWEET sketch Karen has for us this week:

I had made a card for a friend earlier this week with these papers and they were still out on my desk so how about a non traditional colored Christmas card?
I do love the colors in this paper pack the Stampin Up Cheerful Treat DSP.
I started the card with a base of Concord Crush card stock and then the next layer is some retired (but I still LOVE and have hoarded a bunch) pale plum card stock. I embossed this with the Snow Burst EF. The bottom part of the card is some of the above mentioned DSP. I used some concord crush ribbon for the strips in the sketch.

The snowman is from the Snow Much Fun stamp set. I stamped with black stazon onto the white card stock and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. I used Lucky Limeade and Concord Crush ink and a bit of crumb cake and pumpkin pie. I added the "snow" using the silver glimmer paper from Stampin UP. The snowflakes are die cut with the Northern Frost die strip and I added some basic pearls to the centers. The sentiment is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set. I added a bit more sparkle on the snowman and is snow ball (he he) with some dazzling details.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:

Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
