Frosty Friends!

Hi People!

I'm back again -- so much stamping that I haven't had time to post!  I'm participating in a stamping "Boot Camp" right now so my drill sargeant is pushing us to get organized and share with everyone!  Yep, the business opportunity, stamping in general with all of it's fabulous health benefits, etc.  (Yes, I firmly believe that a hobby is healthy for both the heart and mind!!)

I met with my upline yesterday and she encouraged us to participate in Mary Jo's Sketch Challenge.  The challenge was even greater because we (my upline and 3 other demonstrators besides me!) all had to use the Frosty Friends stamp and choose a patterned piece of paper (preferably different but that didn't end up being a requirement as Marilyn and I both chose the same one unknowingly!) from the Festival of Prints pack.

I really love this Frosty Friends stamp set.  It's one of the single stamps available in the "not so mini" Holiday Mini Catalog until the end of December.

Here's Mary Jo's Sketch:


Here's my version/interpretation of the sketch:

I flipped the sketch and made my card more horizontal than the sketch above.  The little jewels in the corner are our jewel rhinestones that I colored with a red sharpie.  I love that I can match my jewels and pearls to any color scheme!  The finishing touch was the snowflakes, cut out with the new Snow Flurry Bigz die and the silver glimmer paper. 

Want a closeup view?!
You can almost see the glittery snowflakes in the air (Dazzling Diamonds is my friend!) and on the hats, trim, etc. 
Thanks for visiting today!!
