Mojo Monday Sketch #56 A Day Late...

***Don't forget to sign up for my BLOG CANDY!!! ***

Well this is my first time attempting to do one of Julee's Mojo Monday sketches. I've always seen them, but just never made time. I had some time today because I left work early to go to the dentist. That was no fun, the dentist had to numb me three times to do a filling...NOT FUN!!! :( Anyway I came home and got right to work on this great sketch! :D

Stamps: Penny Black Snowman Paper: Be Merry (My Mind's Eye) & CTMH Crystal Blue, Tulip, White Daisy & Baby Pink CS Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black & Copics Accents: Silver Brads (Paper Studio), Pink Ribbon (May Arts), Paper Piercer, Cirlce Nesties, Pop Dots, & CB Swiss Dots

I have a few new things I was working with today!!! I got this new cute Penny Black Snowman stamp at HL. I'd been eyeing it for a while now and when this weeks coupon was 40% off, I just had to get it!!! I am also using my new My Mind's Eye paper called Be Merry!!! This paper is so much fun I can't wait to make more cards with it!!! :D Well let's get to the deets of the card, shall we?!?! I started by inking my snowman in Brilliance Graphite Black Ink and stamped it on White Daisy CS. I then used my copics to color him in. Next I worked on my standard base using Tulip CS. I then layered it with a piece of Baby Pink and Crystal Blue CS and my Be Merry Dp! I pierced around the edge of the Crystal Blue CS and the dp and added some big Silver Brads to the corners. Next I took my image and layered it with the same colors as my base and pierced, added smaller brads to the corners of my image and added a small Heidi Swapp Ghost Star to the top left corner of my image. Next I cut a circle out of Sweet Leaf CS using my Nesties and then ran the cirlce through my CB using the Swiss Dots Folder and taped it to my base. In the blog candy I am giving away this lovely pink lace ribbon. I also bought some for myself and thought it would perfect with this card. So I stapled it onto my base and pop dotted my image on top! This card took me a while to make (I'm ashamed to admit it), but it did. The sketch was easy, it was just getting all the details right!!! :D Anywho, I love it and I hope you do too! :D

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great evening!!! I'm off to make some more cards!!! :D Take care!!!

Have a Fabulous Evening!!! :D

So so cute! I love snowmen, and you've done a great job with this little guy! All the details you added really work together well, so it was worth the extra effort. I think your coloring on this one is just perfect, too because you didn't over work the snowman! Really really cute! TFS.
