Snowman Bulb


Happy weekend, everyone.  Don't know about you, but I find it hard to believe this month is almost over.  Where did June go? 

I had so much fun with Susan's (aka rainy) June Sketch that I used it again to create another Christmas card.  This time I used Sassy Cheryl's Merry Christmas Snowman Bulb.  The background and scarf were digitally paper pieced.  Coloring was done with Copics and highlighted with a silver Spica pen. I also covered the bulb with glossy accents and sponged the edges of the image panel with soft sky ink.  Although it doesn't show in my photo, there is lots of sparkle and shine on both the papers and image.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Sassy Cheryl's Show me #80 -- show me what you are working on
CHNC Challenge 78 -- Let's get inky
Di's Digi Designs Challenge -- Spotty and Dotty
Card Makin' Mamas Challenge #48 -- red, white and blue color challenge
One Stop Craft Challenge 181 -- Christmas in June

Hope everyone has a great week, and many thanks for taking the time to visit!
