My second Challenge for today is from Penny Black's Saturday Challenge No. 16 - Seasons. For this Challenge we could make a card choosing any Season. I decided to go with "Winter", and have also chosen one of my NEW buys from Ally Pally. This stamp is called "I love Snow" (2541K), which has been coloured in with my Art-Kure watercolour brushes, and Sukura Gel pens. For a little "sparkle" on the image, I have added glitter on the snowballs The image has been cut out, and layered on pink cardstock. My second piece of pink card, I have run through my Cuttlebug "Snowflake" Embossing folder, and cut to size. A piece is pink ribbon has then been tied around this piece of card. The main backing paper I have used for the base has been printed from Funky Hands Paper Collection CD "Yule be Funky". I have used a sentiment from Funky Fairy's Download "Xmas Rounds", which has been cut using my Round Nesty, and the Scalloped layer for the sentiment has also been cut from my Scalloped Nesty. All my edges have been brushed lightly with a Pink Chalk Eye stamp pad.
