New Belles 'n Whistles Challenge - Snowflakes



Hello and welcome to the first Belles 'n Whistles Challenge for 2011! This time it's my lovely DT sister Kathy who's hosting the challenge. And she decided she wants to see Snowflakes on your cards! And this is my DT card for the challenge:

Snowball Snowbaby was colored again using my re-discovered Pencils and OMS. DP is from Bo Bunny and the large Flower from Petaloo. Sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps. The large snowflake I found at a dollar store. I got them in October already but never used them before. Swirl die is from Marianne Design. I 'm  in love with these dies! If you are in the states you can get them HERE


I also added Stickles Star Dust for some bling. The light blue outlining/shadowing was done with Distress Inks 'Tumbled Glass'



I am also entering my card into the following challenges: 7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Anything Goes and Angel Creative Updates Challenge - Anything Snows

Hugs,
