Celebrate Your Day with Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge #51!!! =)

Pin It

Are you ready for the New Paper Sweeties January Challenge #51!!??
I can't believe 2017 is here, I've been WAITING for the New Year and now we also have a New Challenge and a Prize up for Grabs too, so I hope you'll join us and Play along this month over on the Paper Sweeties Blog!!
I was INSPIRED to Create a FUN Winter Scene and I wanted to make it an Anniversary Card so I decided to use two of the Snowman Images from the Snow Friends Stamp Set!! I decided to die cut all of the coordinating Elements using the Snow Friends Sweet Cuts Die Set and then paper pieced them together for a FUN Layered look just like the Inspiration Photo!! I used some Wink of Stella Glitter Marker for some added Sparkle and I just LOVE the way it looks!! A little Martha Stewart Chunky Course Glitter gives the PERFECT finishing touch making the Snowy Hills come to life!! =)  For my background I started with Tim Holtz Distress Water Color Paper and stamped and Embossed some of the Snowflake Images from the same New Snow Friends Stamp Set!! I stamped them in Versa Mark and then added my White Embossing Powder!! I used Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Broken China for the Perfect Background and I LOVE how it makes the Snowflakes just POP off the Page!! To finish my card off I added a Heart that I stamped onto some Music Patterned Paper and then colored with my Distress Barn Rad Marker and then Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter and added with Foam Tape to connect the Couple!!
I sure hope you'll go and checkout what the rest of the AMAZING DT Members Created because I know you'll be Inspired!!
