Just for Fun Snowman

Hi Everyone,
Changing gears here a little today with a Winter Card. I wanted to try out some new Stamps from Mark's Finest. (They will be the November sponsor on The Stamping Vacation Blog.) I used the Country Snowman Clear set. I followed the Sketch from CC Monthly challenge blog fairly closely, but I omitted the flowers.

I stamped on white CS with black ink. I used markers and watercolored with ink to color the image. Die cut and emboss with a Spellbinders die. I layered lots of Glitter DP from My Mind's Eye. The CS is Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up. I added a twill ribbon and gold rhinestones. And, I used a sentiment quote from the Frosty The Snowman show (sentiment stamp from My Sentiments Exactly).

Here are some detail shots.

Challenges for Frosty Mug card:
CC Monthly : Sketch
Christmas Card Challenges: Incorporate your Favorite Christmas Movie- Frosty the Snowman.
Bah - Humbug: Across the miles
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club: Christmas and use glitter, ribbon, and gems
Winter Wonderland: Male Christmas Card.
Design Dollies: Color challenge- Red,Blue, Ivory, Brown

Have a great day and I'll be back tomorrow with more Fall cards.
