Have Snow, Will Shovel!

The title is the sentiment inside this winter card! I made it for the Featured Stamper on SCS today!
I really like how it turned out. I made s0me of the crystal snowflakes that Anna Wight has been making and she even did a tutorial for it! Thanks, Anna! I loved making them. Wish you could see the great sparkle!
She used Diamond Dust glitter, which is actually tiny shards of glass! I entered it in the search on ebay and ordered some right away!
The card base is Papertrey Ink, Ocean Tide. Then a layer of Real Red. The beautiful dp is from Bo Bunny. The round nestability layer is Ocean Tide and a dp from My Mind's Eye. White gel pen was used to dot around the circle.The snowman is stamped in memento tuxedo black and colored with copics. The edges are sponged with distress ink, tea dye. Stickles added to the image and that's it!
Copic colors are as follows
Bg10, Bg72 and BG09
E53 for snowman
R05, R46 and R59 are the reds. I start light and add in dark until I get the color I want.
RV42 and R22 for his cheeks.
Sorry to whine, but I just have to say I can't believe how fast the weekend went! I didn't get done nearly everything I wanted to! The list keeps growing and growing!
Have a good evening!

Well this certainly sums up all the snow you've been having! Every time I see the news, it mentions your area! Great card! I think I have some of that diamond dust...I got it at AC Moore. I'll have to use it again!

Cheryl, this is just the most adorable snowman ever! I love how you colored him with the browns, and just brought him to life. I love these WS images.

Gorgeous!! Your snowman looks so warm! Thanks for posting what color brown you used...I was trying to do a polar bear last night and was having a tough time choosing a brown to give him that warm fuzzy look. My Diamond Dust glass glitter stuff should be delivered tomorrow! LOL! That Anna...such an enabler! LOL!
