Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #26

Hi everyone and welcome to another week of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. Our sponsor for our weekly challenge for this week is Heather Ellis from Digi Stamp Characters who has provided us with wonderful images to use on our card this week.Here is my card using the design called "Pure Innocence". Isn't it just as sweet and adorable as it could be. I love working with digi's because I have control over the size of my image. What was a lot of fun for me this week is I got to try out "Fun Flock". I haven't used this before and I have attached it to the sweet little girls outfit and the Snowman's Hat. I love this stuff!!!You can see a better close up in the above picture of the fun flock and the glitter I used. I also took some liberties with the image and drew in the plaid on the scarves. I enjoying doing stuff like that!!This shows all the detail in my card. I stitched with my machine to get that snowflake border, I embossed the metallic paper with a snowflake embossing folder. The big snowflake is from spellbinders and the little snowflakes are a Martha Steward Punch.I put some glitter over all the snowflakes and put a rhinestone in the middle of all the small snowflakes.
This is the inside of my card. I went wild with the snowflakes....huh!!!! LOL I can't help it, I miss snowflakes....I haven't seen a for real snowflake in 20 years. Instead of putting Snowmen on our lawns for Christmas, we put Pink Flamingos with pink lights wearing Santa hats..ahahahhah...It's true..no lie.
