Sassy Cheryl's / Basic Grey / Sketch Saturday

This card is for Sassy Cheryl's Challenge this week which is called Let It Snow! You have to use an image from Sassy Cheryl's (of course) that is a snowman. Include some ribbon, button(s) and sparkle on your card or paper project!In addition, I am submitting this in the Basic Grey Challenge this week, which is paper piecing.

Stamps: This skating snowman is a freebee for belonging to Sassy Cheryl's on Paper Craft Planet.Cold Play (SU!)
Ink: Copics and Distress Ink
Paper: Two Scoops (Basic Grey), Ballet Blue, Brushed Silver
Accessories: Button, ribbon, Sizzix snowflakes die, Crystal Effects, Stickles, Fiskars border punch, snowflake confetti, flat-back pearls, lace, Fun Flock

I used Stickles to add some shimmer to the ice, the ice skates, and the wind swirls.

I paper pieced different Two Scoops papers to make his outfit. I popped up his scarf and his hat with silicone glue. You can see how it adds dimension. I also added some Crystal Effects for the carrot nose. One other added touch is the fringe on the hat. I took some organza ribbon, cut off one side and frayed it out, then glued it to the top of his hat.

My snowflake is many layers including two Sizzix die cuts, a plastic snowflake confetti, some flat-back pearls, a button with some organza ribbon.

I am entering the card in one additional challenge, which is Sketch Saturday. I used this sketch as the foundation for my card. Here is the sketch...

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a great week!
