Winter Friends

Good Evening! 

I just wanted to share a card I made for 


It's a progressive, so you play along this month and next month you'll get the next stamp of the month for free. How sweet is that?

I am cutting it close this month...phew...but honestly, where does the month go??? LOL!

This month we got Winter Friends.

CS is American Crafts and DP is from Recollections. 

I used the sketch from
 I {heart} Card Sketches #75


 I colored the image with Prisma Pencils. Slowly getting the hang of coloring with pencils. hehehehe! I used Diamond Stickles and White Liquid Pearls for snow.

I used Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch with Silver shimmer paper and topped the snowflakes with Buttons and Twine from my stash. 


 I'd like to enter the following challenges:
