4 Challenge Snowman with Lights

Christmas in July is still be celebrated here in Georgia. I think I am on a mission to get as many Christmas cards done in July as I can. This card was created for four challenges as follows:

Three Clovers Thursday Challenge #23 - Use Bling on your card- I have glitter, stickles, a snowflake charm, silver shiny snowflake brads, and rhinestones on the brad snowflake
High Hopes #41- Use Sparkle and Shine- same as above
Card Position System #126- Sketch Challenge...see below
Pile It On- Use watercolor technique and at least one other challenge.

I have been dying to ink this stamp up. It is a Stampendous Stamp called Snow Lights. I had wanted this for a long time and could never afford the price it was going for on Ebay. Well, a few weeks after Christmas last year this came up for bid and I won it for a reasonable price. I was so happy!!! I watercolored this with ink and a waterbrush, used the cuddlebug snowflake and swiss dot embossing folders, round nesties, spellbinders snowflake die cut, silver snowflake brads, rhinestones, Martha Stewart Glitter for the hat, stickles for the snowflakes and snowman. There is a little silver snowflake charm hangng from the bow. This card is so much prettier in person. But anyway, here is the sketch.

Thanks for looking at my card today. Why not join some or all of these challenges. Don't you love this sketch? It was fun so give it a try. See you tomorrow!
