A Saturday Snowflake

You didn't think I was done with the cute stamps from Paper Pretties did you? This one is Sophia making a snow angel and she is stylin' in her polka dot hat and boots.. I'm kind of jealous of her polka dot hat... I don't have a polka dot hat, do you? I have striped hats, knitted hats, a fleece hat, dark hats, light hats but no polka dot hat... and I think I need one! Maybe it would make the process or removing snow from my driveway all that much more fun. :)

Quick notes: card base is a 5 1/4" x 10 1/4" piece of Regal Rose cardstock folded in half. The next layer is a piece of Certainly Celery that was embossed with the Snowflakes embossing folder and the Cuttlebug. It was brayered with Whisper White Craft ink and coated with Winter White embossing powder and set with a heat gun. Purty, ain't it? This piece was adhered to the card base along with a strip of Regal Rose Prints Designer paper. A piece of green polka dot ribbon was then added. The main image is Sophia from the Snowflake Kisses set. She's been watercolored with Watercolor Wonder Crayons and a blender pen and layered on Always Artichoke. Brads were added to the three corners and then the main image was adhered to the card base with dimensionals. Finally "MWAH" was stamped and punched out with the 1/4" circle punch before being layered on a 1 3/8" circle of Rose Red. Paper piercing and a couple of small crystal clear brads were added before the sentiment was attached to the card.
