Snow with a Sketch

I always tell me people that the only place I want to see snow is on a mountain in Colorado in February, when we head out for our annual winter vacation.  That's not entirely true. I am not averse to seeing it on a card. This week, Sassy Dawn threw out a Snow Challenge with the twist of a sketch on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog.

For my challenge card, I chose this delightful image from the Sassy Cheryls Digi Store called  Catching A Snowflake. I've done this and quite honestly, I'm betting you all have too. It was fun wasn't it? Now come on  fess up, you know you enjoyed it. I've colored her with Copics.

The papers are digital from a kit called BRRRRR from Just So Scrappy Too. She had a tremendous sale in December and I grabbed a bunch of great kits. I love printing papers from a kit of coordinating papers, since it also allows me to change the size, to make it work with my card without too much leftover. I created the Snowflake Die cut with MTC software and cut it with my Black Cat. The snowflakes and stars are a Cuttlebug Die.

Now you have until 5 p.m. EST on Monday the 16th to get a card entered in the challenge. You don't even have to use a Sassy Cheryl's image(although for the life of me I can't imagine why you wouldn't want to use one), but if you do you get two chances to win.


  1. What!!!! no comments on this little treasure! what's up with that!!! I get to be first!
    I think this is absolutely adorable! Such a perfect image to use and you have brought her to life with your fantastic coloring!
    I have never tried printing papers. always wondered if they would come out true to color with all printer inks seeming to be different!
    they work great for you.. these are the perfect choice!
    Thanks for getting Sassy with us this week!
