TSC1106 Got the 'Snowman Blues'

It is time for the Twisted Sister Challenge with one of my favourite group of gals - the sistah's!!  Don't we all need sisters, whether they are real sisters or friends - they are all sistah's!!  This week we are to make a card in Peggy's (ala Marilyn Prestonn) favourite colours BLUE, using any shades of blue and it must have a snowman.  We could also use silver and white!  I had to hunt through some RAK's to find one solitary snowman and he came from a Blog Candy from Pauline - who will be happy to see I am actually getting to use some of those gorgeous PB images!!!



I coloured him with chalks as demonstrated in my tutorial and added some Dazzling Diamonds that I won in a Blog Candy from Abby - see you gals have kept my supply cupboard topped up with the loveliest things!!!  He is then cut out and popped up on dimensionals into embossed white CS that has been cut out with a Labels 4 Nestie, with a darker blue one framing it!!



This is all put onto blue CS which has been  embossed with the Divine Swirls embossing folder and inked with Distressing Ink.  Double Stitched ribbon has been layered onto a wider strip and  added to the CS.  A Snowflake that came from Jocelyn (aka JoBEar2) has been inked and shimmered with Kindy Glitz and attached with a large white brad.  The final touch being a decorative corner that was also part of a RAK...many hands have contributed to this card!!

This also Qualifies for the Challenge over at Sassy Susie's for a Christmas card!  It is her first week - so pop over and show her some support!!
The gals at Stampin'B have also challenged us to make Christmas cards so be sure to pop over there too.
