Snow Sweet Couple "High Hopes Challenge 2"


Our new challenge 2 has just started over at the High Hopes blog. For this week's creations we ask you to use a combination of blue, brown, green and any neutrals! If you need some inspiration just check out the awesome samples by our wonderful Divas!!

For my card this week I stamped my "Snow Sweet Snowlady" and then masked her so I could add "Dapper Dan Snowman". Don't they make a sweet couple! I've added some tiny beads to her poinsettia flower on her hat. I also added a dickie bow and some dew drops for the snow pile they are standing in. Hope you find some time to join in this week!

It's really miserable weather here in the UK and has turned quite cold. It's raining lots and quite windy too :-(

Have a great Sunday!
Hugs,


Card details:
Stamps: High Hopes Snow Sweet Snowlady and Dapper Dan Snowman
Ink: Memories
Papers: Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Technique: Prismacolor Pencils, Sansodor and paper stumps to blend
Embellishments: Ribbon, dew drops, beads. mini bow and wooden sentiment

This is an awesome card Nikki! Love the snow couple- too cute! Great idea to use the dew drops around them too :).

Sorry about the rain and the cold
:(, hope the sun comes out soon there. It has been getting colder here too, but finally the rain has let up. We had four to five days of rain every week all Spring and Summer! Have a great week!
