Just Chillin' Out

This card was made with a lot of my favorite things. All these colors purple, white and silver are some of my favorite colors to use right after BLUE. Snowmen and snowflakes that are something that I can never have enough of except for the real stuff! This Dustin Pike snowman is definitely one of the cutest I have. I popped up a few of the marshmallows and colored the edges to give the impression that they fell out of the mug when the snowman climbed in. I also put Crystal Effects on the cocoa to make it look like liquid. I also attempted to paint snowflakes on the scarf so it wouldn't be so plain looking. Rubber Stamp Tapestry is a stamp company that I love especially this snowflake set, I use it a lot! This card has a lot of sparkle that doesn't show up so I took a second pic to try to show all the sparkle it has IRL. Because of all these things this card met the criteria for a lot of challenges, so here is the list of them.
