Paper Sweeties SpotlightSnowmanCard card Mynn

For My card I did the following:

I ripped cardstock and sponged it with bordering blue ink to create my snowy background!! A scrap of patterned paper made my snowy sky and I added 4 snowflake brads from Making Memories! I used an old SU! Christmas set called A Merry Season! I watercolored by squoosing my inkpads so that ink got on the lid and then I used a wet paintbrush to pick up the ink!! The colors I used were all by Stampin’Up – Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Bordering Blue, and Pumpkin Pie. I also used my light gray colored zig real brush pen for the snowman!  I had a lot of fun doing it this way!! I fussy cut him out and mounted him to the card with foam tape!

I made my card with some designer paper from in my scraps – yes, I know I am using a lot of scraps lately!! But I have A LOT to use so that is good.  I also used some shiny silver paper to diecut some snowflakes from Simon Says Stamp – they are the Eliza snowflake, the Kate snowflake and the MaryAnne snowflake  and I also cut a strip of the shiny paper to put by the silver trim that I had in my stash along with the silver and white twine I used!! The joy stamp is from SU! – not sure of the name of the set!!

I am happy that this card also fits these challenges:
