A Snowy Hug

Here is another Christmas card I made using Magnolia's Snowy Hug. The image is for the challenge at Paper Cutz which is to use a snowman or snowflake. I used the color combination of pink, rose and white. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. The sketch I used is from Friday Sketchers. The base of my card is pink cardstock backed in white and then backed in rose. I added two blocks of rose backed in white. I backed my image and sentiment in rose backed in white. I added crystal stickles to all the white cardstock. I added a strip of white ribbon behind the image and added crystal stickles to the edges of the ribbon. I punched white snowflakes and small pink snowflakes using two different sized Martha Stewart punches. I added the pink snowflake to the white snowflake and then added crystal stickle to them and added a pearl in the center of each. On the sentiment I added a small pink snowflake and added crystal stickles and a pearl to the center. On the image I added crystal stickles to the snow on the broom and at the bottom of the image. I also added white flocking to the hats and to the jacket and pearls for the buttons on the snowman.
