Triple Challenge Snowman ~ CCMC228, NAC23, & PP124

I havn't had time to blog much this week, but I have a few projects coming up in the next few days.  This card is for Create With Connie and Mary Challenge 228, Nacho Average Challenge 23, and The Paper Players Challenge 124. 
2012 Create Thursday-008Nac23
The color challenge for CCMC has always been a favorite of mine for winter cards.  I love lavender and light blue for snowflakes and snow.  My chistmas cards a few years ago featured these two colors.  I used the sketch from Nacho Average Challenge and the snowman theme from The Paper Players.  This is the first ink this stamp set has seen.  I just got it during the big sale SU had!  I love a good deal, and this set WAS a good deal!  If you havn't played along at Nacho Average Challenge, you should.  The sketch this week would be the perfect time to try it out!

I used alot of glitter glue on this project...almost as a third color!  I added it to the top hat, the buttons, accents on the snowman himself, the bird wings, and below his feet as snow.  I love all the sparkle this card has to offer, especially with the glimmer paper.  It's an eyecatcher for sure!  The last thing I did was add the sentiment as a little hanging tag and a layered snowflake accessory using all three colors from the challenge. 
Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Snow Much Fun
Paper: Baja Breeze, Wisteria Wonder, Silver Glimmer, White
Ink: Baja Breeze, Wisteria Wonder
Accessories: Modern Label punch, Northern Frost die, Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon, Snowflake EF, Glitter Glue, In-color brad
Thanks for taking a peek and have a terrific day!
