Here is this weeks Sweet Sunday card. I tipped the sketch on it's side so it would work better with the image I wanted to use. I've included a close up of the snowman so you can see how sparkly he is.
Here are the details:
I started with a base of shiny blue cardstock that came from my stash, layered a piece of baby blue paper next and then embossed a piece of vellum with my CB dots embossing folder to go on top of it so it would look like snow. I added some blue ribbon from my stash and a strip of the shiny blue paper that was embossed with my CB snowflakes embossing folder.
The image and sentiment come from a new set I just picked up at Michael's that is made by "Recollections". I'm the biggest sucker for snowmen of any type and I love this little guy.
I first cut out my circle with a nestie. I double stamped the image, versa marked over both and then embossed with SU irridescent ice embossing powder to give the whole thing a snowy look.
I cut out the scarf and stars on the second image and mounted them with pop dots over the original image. I did the same embossing method on the "let it snow" sentiment. Then I added a cluster of snowflakes to which I added some glittered pearl centers. I added a blue rhinestone to the center of the snowflake on the sentiment circle and some bigger glittered pearls around the top of the snowman to make it look like he is juggling snowballs. At least that was my intention:)) Finally, I used my EK Success corner punch to add a little frame to the scene.
This card was hard to photograph with all the shiny glittery stuff going on, but I came pretty close to the actual card color in the end.
Update: I broke down and made one adjustment to this card after I originally posted it. I added the cross ribbon on the bottom because I just couldn't deal with the wide open space on the left side of this card. tee hee It breaks with the original sketch somewhat, but I like it much better
