SNOW cute and a WINNER

OYE! In the midst of yet another blast from mother nature. For those of you in warmer areas, could you share the love?! Please?! I've had about enough of 'ol man winter! Since all I see is a winter wonderland (it is quite pretty), I guess it translated to my card today :) I originally saw a hand drawn snowman face somewhere in blog land and kept it tucked in my memory, but all I could remember was her name was Kim too - isn't she snow cute?!
* Get your MOJO going - jumpstart your kreation with a challenge, it gets those juices flowin! I started off with the current MOJO176 sketch challenge. Cut my Baja Breeze cardbase to a 5-1/4 square
* A soft winter sky. A piece of Paper Vellum was inked with Craft White Serene Snowflakes and dusted with some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Heat it with your Heat Tool for that perfect glimmer
* Strategy! How do you place vellum without seeing how it is adhered? In this case, a Glue Dot is strategically placed in the corners behind a snowflake. Sneeky ;)
* SNOW much fun! Tear your Whisper White paper, Smooch it with Vanilla Shimmer Mist and dazzle the drift with Dazzling Diamonds. Instant snow :)
* Now get punchy! A 1-3/8 and 1-3/4 Circle Punch kreate the snowlady. The Round Tab Punch, altered a tad makes for a cute little hat. And to finsh off her ensemble with a Blushing Bride scarf, I used the Word Window and Photo Corner Punch. Paper Snips were used to kreate some fringe on the ends of the scarf. Last but not least a Small Heart made with the new Glimmer Paper.
* Decorated her hat and scarf with a Daffodil Delight Rosette. Don't worry, you didn't miss something! Take your very vanilla Rosettes from the Occasions Mini and alter it to whatever color SU Marker you'd like. How versatile!
* Bedazzle - Added Basic Pearls to the Rosettes and her body and more Dazzling Diamonds to accent her rosy cheeks, chin, and body (TIP: I use a very little Crystal Effects to adhere my diamonds)
* Make it 3D - add a few Dimensionals for that bit of depth
* The sentiment Enjoy, from the Occasions Mini You're a Gem set falls among the snowflakes. To make it pop alitte, since it kinda blends in, I placed a Basic Rhinestone in the 'o'
* A final touch was some Chuncky Essentials glitter at the base of Rosey(as my daughter named her) and in the center of a few snowflakes.
I hope you Enjoyed ;)

Love your punch art snowman!!! Just fabulous and that vellum background is fantastic. You put a nice spin on this dreary winter weather. I am sorry I can't send you my weather because I'm suffering through the same kind of weather apparently.
