Sweet Sunday 41

Here is my take on this week's Sweet Sunday challenge. It turned out to be a rather shimmery sparkly card after all was said and done and I got to use a few new nesties that I recently picked up.

Here are the details:

My shimmer blue and white paper are from Archivers. The snowman and sentiment are from Stampendous Snowplace clear acrylic set and the tree is from Recollections Winter Wonderland clear acrylic set. The background stars and dots is from The Angel Company. I colored the snowman and tree with some new copics markers that I recently picked up. I'm slowly getting accustomed to them. I added some glitter to the stars in the background, colored the star on the tree with my yellow Spica pen and added some Sparkly Fluff to the snowman's earmuffs and below the snowman and tree for snow. I love how easy that fluff is to use, even on small areas. Then I added some Kaiser red pearls to the tree for ornaments, cut out the stamped scene with a nestie, sponged the edge with Adirondack Stonewashed blue and mounted it over 2 layers of shimmer paper that I texturized with CB dots and snowflakes embossing folders. The sentiment was stamped, embossed with versa mark and SU irredescent ice, punched out with a circle punch, sponged with blue ink on the edges and backed with blue that was cut with another new nestie. I mounted both nesties with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by again. I'm off to carve pumpkins and then on to my Mojo challenge for this week.
