Snow Much Fun.....

Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you today made with one cute but sadly retired SU set called "Snow Much Fun". The little snowmen are so adorable and will definitely warm your heart.
Here is my card, which I'm linking to the LiveLoveCards "Snow Flake" challenge, (I'm pushing the envelope here a bit with my Snowman card, I mean.....Snowmen are made of snow flakes, right?) and also, to the Mojo Monday sketch challenge, this is my second card for it.
 As always, I stamped the image with Stazon Jet Black ink onto a panel of Canson water color paper and colored it with the aqua painter and Stampin Up! markers in this colors: Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Bashful Blue and Basic Black, I put a bit of gold gel pen on the hat, scarf and buttons, this is a very elegant Snowman, no coal buttons for him, tee hee!! the pattern paper and card stock are from Hobby Lobby, the gold ribbon from the bottomless ribbon drawer, I'm not buying any more ribbon, I don't think I will ever use all I have. The little golden bell is die cut with a sleigh bell die, possibly from Memory Box, not sure, it's old. The brad is from SU, very old too.
I tied a little bit of gold satin embroidery floss on it.
This is the sketch from Mojo Monday that inspired this card.
 
I hope you like it, I want to thank you for stopping by, have a great weekend.
Hugs from Maria.

  6. Thank you Vicki, there are certain stamp sets that I will keep for good because they are so beautiful or so cute, this one is that kind.
    One of the images is a little bird ''rolling'' on a snow ball and I've made a spinner card with it for a little boy's birthday, so darn cute.
