Christmas Snow Sketches

I was able to sneak some stamping time in today and created this card for 2 great challenges, Merry Monday and The Paper Players.

The sketch is the current one over at Merry Monday and The Paper Players have a Bingo challenge. I decided to do the top row, which is Christmas-Sparkle/Bling-Ribbon. I did have a bit of a time trying to decide how to add ribbon onto this card but finally I just made a 3rd banner strip across the bottom using some Cherry Cobbler ribbon. The sparkle/bling is in the form of Dazzling Diamonds, which I added along some of the lines in the image, to make it look like ridges of snow.

I just love this stamp from the set 'Winter Memories'. As a child growing up(and even into adulthood!) one of my favorite things has always been going out and making snowmen. It's always so much fun trying to create that happy little guy or girl to adorn your yard. In my neck of the woods the snow is very dry so we don't get to make snowmen that often here but when we do we sure take advantage of it!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to go check out these 2 great challenges!
