High Hopes challenge

I did this card in 'High Hopes'
of a chance to win one of their fabulous stamps.
The fantastically talented ILA did the sketch
and the DT have done her proud. Go see!

I LOVE this snowman stamp and love colouring him in. He's a bit intricate in places and I've gone a bit awry now and again, but I couldn't throw him out, could I? I've coloured him with that 'eclectic mix' again! LOL. Prisma colours and Crayolas. (They are all in the same jar), Twinkling H2Os, and the odd Marvey or two. Ribbon from my stash and the papers are from Papermania's 'A wonderful Christmas Time' pad. Leaves from my Leone Em punch and I've added one or two gold snowflake brads. I forgot to run him through the CB Swiss Dots folder to replicate snow. Doh. Too late! He'll have to do.

Thanks for visiting. Please leave a comment, I do appreciate them.
