Belli Challenge #108 - Snow

After you read this post, please scroll down to the next post for today's Cardabilities birthday sketch and my card.

Today's Belli Challenge is all about SNOW. To some of you, this is a four letter word. LOL But since I live in Texas, where we rarely ever see snow, I love this challenge! LOL Not only did I stamp snowflakes on my card, but I also used an adorable snowman from Flourishes.

Isn't that just adorable? I started with this awesome Oval Window A2 Frame with Mat & Card Set from Creative Cuts and More. I stamped the snowflakes with white ink all over the dark blue frame and set that aside. While the snowflakes were drying, I stamped the snowman on the white mat and colored him with Copic markers. To accent the snowy areas, I used a glue pen and adhered some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. All I had to do after that was adhere the white mat to the dark blue card base, and then adhere the dark blue frame (with the snowflakes stamped on it) over the white mat.

Head on over to the Belli Challenge blog and see what the Belli Girls created for this challenge. I hope you will be inspired to create something with snow and join in our challenge.
