Snowboarder


I made today's card for this week's Mod Squad challenge to use teal and purple colors. Mention the color purple, and I'm there! It's my favorite color :)

I used a retired SU! image, stamping with Versafine Onyx black ink, and heat-embossed it with clear detail ep. I sponged some clouds with Ranger broken china ink, and added some snow to the ground with Lawn Fawn stitched hillside dies. I added stickles in frosted lace, aqua, lavender and purple to represent the snow coming off the snowboard. I added some Lawn Fawn stitched snowflakes colored with Copics to match the Echo Park Winter Wishes dsp. The borders were done with a MS Skylands Snowflake punch, and the sentiment is from SSS.  The card base and mat were done with eggplant cardstock. Finally, I added some Stampendous silver stickers for a little sparkle.

I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge -
It's a guy thing.

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a warm day wherever you are!

What a great teen/masculine card, Carol. Love those colors and I have been trying to think up a Unity card in the same colors. I see those fun stitched snowflake dies are getting a workout! :)

Nifty card. You captured the essence of sports in the snow--cold snow but warm from the activity.

Wow, what an amazing card Carol! You got the snow flying just perfectly, it looks so real! I had to enlarge the picture just to look at it. lol Some of my boys would love a card like this! This is a great masculine card for any winter sports guy. Hugs, Brenda
