Think Snow (J/K)

I made this card with a free digi image I found at Spyer's Corner. I tried to color him with Copics to match this Fancy Pants designer paper called Blissful Blizzard, but I clearly missed the mark! I don't own as many Copics as I'd like, but the colors are as close as I can get :) Anyhoo, I matted with some dark cranberry card stock, adding some tiny silver snowflake stickers to the tiny punched snowflakes. It's pouring rain here in PA today and I'm grateful that it's not snow, but the sentiment went perfectly with this sweet & cute image!

I'll be entering this into the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #130 which is "anything goes." Any sketch, any colors, any embellishments, etc.

I'm also taking this one over to the Snippets Playground #105 since I made use of some very tiny snippets of dsp for this one.

Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you a wonderful day!

You may think you missed the mark on the colors, but I think he looks phenomenal. He really pops off that gorgeous background paper. I love the sentiment pieces and those precious snowflakes. The banner is a nice offset piece. It is going to start to rain any minute, but maybe snow on Thursday. Jack is patiently waiting for a "blizzard". Enjoy your day.

I think he matches just great! The aqua on his scarf and the background paper are perfect! So cute and I do love that design!

Beautiful card and great coloring as always...(I think your colors are great!)
Come color at my house...Jim has almost all the colors have to remind myself that it keeps him busy in the winter coloring...and forget about the cost to buy them...LOL!)

Aw, what a cute snowman. I think the colors you used are great--he is brimming with personality.

Happy (almost) New Year!

Hi Carol, I don't think you've missed the mark at all - your snowman is lovely and I like the banners too. Elizabeth xx

Happy New Year!

Very nice and thanks for the J/K on the whole "think snow" thing. How 'bout I not? We had some on the mountains last week, much too close for this lizard's liking. Beautiful card though and while your colors don't match the paper they don't clash with it either. Lookin' good! I need to pull out some snippets and come play as well.
