Good Morning to Everyone !! I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend.
Our challenge this week for TIOT was Metal Musingl. It could be brads, eyelets, charms or anything metal. I love to use charms so it is a great challenge for me.
Doesn't this image make you want it to snow so you can go out and play or just take your dog for a walk? The first snow is always so refreshing and glistening.
This image is from the Victoria Case "Winter Wonderland Collection" for SCACD. It is called Winter. She is so happy she makes you want to smile !! The stamps in this collection are really awesome. Check them out, they are different than just your ordinary Christmas stamps.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

BasicGrey Challenge Week #6 - Color combo - Green, Red, Blue
I stamped and heat embossed the image and colored her with Copics. I used the Polar White Flower soft around her jacket and the ground. I added a little Doodlebug White glitter to FS before I applied it. It makes it glisten so nicely. I used an EK success snowflake punch on the background layer and put little rhinestones in the middle of each snowflake. Now, here is a cool thing. The snowflake charm was actually pewter and I painted it with Gold Shimmerz paint and applied a little stickles to it and added the rhinestone. To get the perfect bow, I used "Bow Easy" which you can get at Susana's store.
The snowflakes on the background paper is embossed and has glitter. The camera only picked up a little. Other than that, the inside is pretty simple. I stamped a few snowflakes and sponged a little and that's it.
Be sure to check out all the other DT samples. You can check them out here.
I appreciate you stopping by. Just a reminder, I will be posting blog candy on the 1st for a drawing on the 10th.
