Now for the current card challenge:
Our theme this week is ANYTHING GOES!!!  
This is an easel card, a very easy design to make. I used one of Debbie's images from: The Crafty Pad.  I just love anything Snowman!! The first picture is a close up of the cover of the card. You can see the embellishments that I used and my attempt at shading plus nothing is complete without a little "bling!" I love the verse that I found...really compliments the image. I think this sentiment is from: create with tlc

Image: The Crafty Pad
Bling: Recollections foil stickers
         Gelly Roll Pen
         Viva Glitter liner
Snowflakes & sheer ribbon: The Dollar Tree
Coloring: Copic Marckers
