Mr. Snowman

Warm winter wishes, everyone!   I know many have been dealing with snow, record cold temps and freezing rain, including our area.  When I saw this cutie freebie image from A Day for Daisies, it certainly made me smile and brightened my day even though I'm not a cold weather fan.  I colored the image with Copics and Irojiten pencils, and added some digital paper piecing. Embellishments include lots of glitter, bling and 'flower soft' snow and, of course, snowflakes.  My sentiment and digital snowflake papers are from Doodle Pantry sets.

The sketch I used is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 .  It's their first on their new blog!

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #01 (SSW2 #01)  -- Sketch
Outlawz Paper a la Mode Challenge for Jan 4--10  (PAM010414) -- Use something new (My snowman image is new!)

The layout is amazing and the paper choice is incredible. Your always give me some much inspiration. Tried not to get behind on comments but had problem with the computer yesterday not sure if weather had anything to do with it but it is working today as it is still -14 below today. Try warm, good time to make some cards and stay in the house.
