Snow is Glistenin'

Phew, it was a scorcher here today - HOT and humid! So when I sat down to look at the Clean and Simple card challenge (CAS27) on SCS it was to incorporate bling. So I cooled myself off with this simple and sparkling snowfall. It really is so pretty in person. I used my Christmas Punch Hostess Lev 2 set and finished this card in under 15 minutes.
First used the snowman head that appears in the tag image. Using my VersaMarker, I outlined his head and stamped him peering from the lower right corner. Made him dazzle with some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and used my Heat Tool to set the sparkle.
My sentiment comes from a retired set of Rub Ons
Then inked up my snowflakes in VersaMark ink and randomly stamped around my sentiment and snowman. Turned them blingy with the same procedure above, adding Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.
Tied a Whisper White Organza Ribbon across the top.
The final bling, added a Filigree Brad and Clear Rhinestone brad to my knot.
Cooled ya down? I love the crisp white look and who doesn't love a little bling :)

Oooo! I love this, Kim! It looks as if Mr. Snowman is looking up to see the first snowflakes fall during a winter storm! So clever! The photo of your card is beautiful but I'm sure it's even more gorgeous in person!
