I got this adorable little snowman from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps the other day. They are going to all digital stamps and had their clear stamps on sale. I was anxious to ink him up so I decided to incorporate two challenges in the process. The first is a sketch challenge from A Spoonful of Sugar. I don't think I've ever done one of their challenges, but I read about it on Shary's blog and decided to use it for my card. The other is the Stamptacular Sunday challenge, which is to make a card using only blue and white. I saw this on Christine's blog here and her card is adorable. I wasn't sure about using blue with the hearts, but I decided it would still be cute. The sentiment that came with it is so sweet. I used my "Snow Dot" CB embossing folder for the background paper. My blues are all SU papers in Not Quite Navy, Sky Blue and Baja Breeze. I colored him with Copics in B93, B95 and B97 and BG0000. I was so happy that I had bought a special ribbon trio from SU awhile back that included the Not Quite Navy ribbon. Hope you like it. It was fun and fairly easy with limited colors and the sketch all laid out for us. Thanks for stopping by. Be watching for the next Busy Beauty blog hop on Thursday with some cute new images that go with this time of year.
