Let It Snow ~ Sketch Saturday # 14


Well, this is my first posting as a DT member for Sketch Saturdays! Can you tell how excited I am? Yesterday was a whirlwind day for me. I received the amazing news from Jo that I had made the DT, I wanted to complete a card to submit for this week's challenge, and dear friends arrived here in Montral from Toronto to visit with us! Talk about a full day!
This week's sketch is fabulous. I thought right away that I could emboss the semi-circle with my snowflake folder and use my Charlie stamp from Whiff of Joy. It all came together really quickly! The sentiment and the snowflakes in the circles are embossed to match my DP. I added Stickles to the tops of the snowballs that cheeky Charlie is holding and the snow on the ground!

  • Stamps: Charlie from Whiff of Joy, Sentiment from Verve Stamps
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Encore Blue Metallic with Clear Embossing Powder
  • Paper: Bazzill Cardstock, SU! Whisper White, Sandylion DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies, May Arts Ribbon, Stickles
  • Tools:SU! Round Tab Punch, Cuttlebug, Snowflakes Embossing Folder, Nestabilies, CM Cutting System.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit Sketch Saturday to see what the other DT members came up with and to participate yourselves!
