CCC-Let it Snow!

We are supposed to get some snow tonight so this challenge is perfect! I love coloring snowmen! You just keep it light with a little color and voila! Actually, coloring snowmen reminds me of many nights when I tole painted wood. Snowmen and Santas were favorites of mine! They still are! This challenged is sponsored by Whipper Snapper. They have so many great stamps! They are donating a 25.00 gift certificate to the winning cardmaker! I decided to make the snow "brown" on this card and go with an antique look. It was lots of fun to coordinate with this wonderful Cosmo paper called Winter Wonderland.
I used E43, E42 , E40 and E000 for the snow.
I even used distressed stickles in linen for the muted sparkle!
Anna Wight's snowflakes are favorites on cards like this and Nicole Heady's packages of buttons have buttons of the same color but different sizes which are perfect!

Now I really had fun with this and made another card using a similar layout, the same snowman, but completely different colors with a focus on BLUE snow! I hope you'll return tomorrow to see him.
Thanks for visiting! Be sure to check out the art from the other designers! Copic Creations Challenge is HERE! (If the post isn't up yet it will be soon!)
Have a great day! SIL is doing better! I am so grateful for your prayers!
