Pink Christmas

Creative Inspirations has an awesome challenge this week, it's A Pink Christmas. This is my card for the challenge. I love this Magnolia Snowman and it's the first time it has been inked up. For shame. I had a crazy idea the other day that I wouldn't buy any more stamps until I used all the ones I have, at least once. LOL Yeah right. I've never be able to buy another stamp. Maybe a garage sale is in order. :)

This card caused me to have to sit through other glitter lecture from my husband. Although, I think his co-workers are slowly coming around. lol I put glitter on this snow, bells, snowflakes, dew drops, and illuminating topcoat on the snowman. Plus, there was already glitter on the patterned paper and brad. Overboard, I know. I also used liquid applique and fun flock on this cute little snowman's coat.

Copics used:
Snowman: C1, C00, BG10, RV000
Clothes: RV11, RV00, RV000
Bells & Buttons, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00
Holly: R39, R29, R24, YG45, YG41
Background: BG10 (airbrushed)

Caardvarks - Die Cuts
Flourishes - Glitter
Crafty Calendar - Winter Snowflakes
