FWF - Sending Wishes

Remember in my last post I told you I had just recieved my Unity November KOTM and it had the most adorable snowman.  Well I don't just have to tell you because today I am going to show you just how cute he is. 




When I saw him I knew he would give me the perfect excuse to use the last of my favorite Bo Bunny Christmas Papers from Last Year and to make a card for Unity's Friday Friends with Flair Link Up and yesterday I discovered he would also be perfect to use to play along with the Unity - Let It Snow Challenge  currently running on the Unity Blog aswell. 

As I don't have any Tria Markers (my now absolute favorite thing to colour in with) in the colours of my chosen papers, I reverted to using my Stampin' Up! Markers, I sort of roughly coloured him in and then went over this with the fine end of my marker in a cross hatch motion to give his jumper and beanie a woven look.  For the snow I used my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  I have found this is good for adding layers of snow not just snow flakes as it doesn't flatten out.



To continue with the snow theme of my card.  I punched out more snowflakes and added purple rhinestones to make them glisten and I repeated my sentiment of Sending Wishes, and punched them out with my circle punch to replicate more snowflakes. 

The layout for my card was created using this weeks sketch #142 over on the Inspirational Card Sketches Challenge Blog where you will find lots of fabulous sketches to inspire your creativity and cards.

So do you agree is this little snowman the most adorable you ever did see? 

Well that's it from me today.  Don't forget to follow the link to the Unity Blog for more fabulous inspiration and to check out their Friday $5 Feature Stamps which for this week is actually featuring four different sets two of which are only $3. 

Other Challenges I have entered this card:


I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
