Three Snowmen for three challenges!

Another card that I can enter into 3 challenges, I'm doing well with these this week! I am entering it into PBSC where the challenge is monochromatic, so I have used my 'snow family' image and the colours blue and white! I have used the LO from Sketch Saturday and the theme of snowmen at My Time To Craft!


The 'snow family' image has been coloured with my whispers pens and then icicle stickles and glossy accents added to their pom pom hats. Sal kindly sent me this image so I want to say a big thank you Sal! The background papers are a mixture of DCWV and Dovecraft. Blue CS was embossed with my snowflakes folder before highlighting individual snowflakes with white sakura pen and glitter. The sentiment is Elzybells. Flowers are prima. Snowflakes created from silver foil card with my x-cut punch. Pearl brad and blue pearl gemstone are from papermania.


I am bit dissapointed with this card. I wish I hadn't highlighted the snowflakes with white sakura pen, I don't think it looks right? I was going to give it to my brother and his family as there are 3 of them, so thought it was quite representative of them. But now I'm not so sure, I may have to make them another one!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I had a lovely day out christmas shopping with my mum yesterday, looks like I might have to do some housework today though!

Hugs, Vicky x
