This image from Magnolia Stamps is one of my favorite stamps. I absolutely love snowmen and have a small collection that I put out every Christmas. I love how this card turned out. At first I wasn't sure about my color choice but it didn't take too long before I was happy with the white, black and teal combination I had chosen. The sketch that I used is from Create 4 Fun. The challenge at Magnolia Down Under is to make your own embellishments. I created my embellishments using 2 different sized Martha Stewart snowflake punches. I punched the larger in white and the smaller in teal. I added crystal stickles and a white pearl to each one. I also used the Martha Stewart drippy goo border punch on the strip of white across my card. I added crystal stickles to it to give it the look of icicles. I also added stickles to all the white cardstock backing the black and teal. Then added stickles to the image and around the sentiment. Can you tell I love glitter? I actually think I used almost a full bottle of stickles making just this one card.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
