Stamp Something - winter!


Oops, I'm running a bit late with this today - one of those days!  Our challenge for this week at Stamp Something is 'winter somethings' and we're sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp - the lucky winner will win a $20 gift certificate.

I decided to try something a bit different for me, and coloured the image in black & white... not sure how successful this has been really, needs a bit of work!  The stamp is from Elzybells, coloured with promarkers with lots of added glamour dust.  The curvy shape was cut on my Cricut (accent essentials cart) - yes, I've actually used it lol!  I've used 2 different Cuttlebug embossing folders to emboss some white linen card and added some spotty ribbon from my stash.  Added some MS punched snowflakes and edged everything with stickles, although it's not showing up very well in the pic.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
