Snow Much Fun!

We are expecting quite a bit of heavy, wet snow tonight and tomorrow here in our part of New England. I am so sick of it unless it is on a card, like this one. Don't you just love this digi from Mo's Digital Pencil. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, I think its that cute face.

I also wanted to do the card in blue but couldn't find any DP in the right shades I colored the image so I stamped the back round instead with my Rubber Stamp Tapestry snowflake set. It is definitely one of my favorite sets. Also you can't tell from the pic but the whole back round was dabbed with Stickles and Dazzling Diamonds on the pompoms, snowflakes, and Flower Soft snow on the image.

These are the challenges that this card works for
Mo's Pigital Pencil Challenge #14-this challenge was a really fun sketch to do, it worked perfectly with the image!
Digital Tuesday Challenge #41-This challenge was Emboss it! I embossed the bottom panel on the card with snowflakes.
Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC12-This challenge was a color, 3 different shades of blue. Between the image and the back round I think I came close to all 3 shades in their challenge.
Crafty Creations Challenge #50-This challenge is to use 3 different textures. I used Flower Soft, dry embossing, glitter, and ribbon.
Charisma Cardz Challenge #2-This challenge is Anything New. How is easy that. I used my new digi from Mo's Digital Pencil, new iridescent snowflakes from JoAnns, and new light blue Recollection sticker pearls from Michaels.
Stamp Something Challenge-This challenge was to use two colors blue and white. My most favorite colors for anything! What fun I had.
3 Clovers Thursday Challenge #47-Baby, Its cold outside is the challenge this week. I am definitely trying to play with all my new winter stamps and images before it isn't cold out anymore.
Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential SSHP14-This challenge is to go wild with snowflakes!!
I went wild by stamping my whole back round with snowflakes instead of using a DP. I do love snowflakes.
Crafty Ann's Challenge #6-Embossing! I love using my Cuttlebug embossing folders when I emboss, can't imagine what I did before I had them. The one I used, snowflakes, is one of my favorites.

These were a lot of fun to do this week. I want to thank all these lovely ladies for coming up with new, fun and sometimes challenging challenges for us to play along with.
