Pretties Wednesday: Heatin' It Up!

He he... what a misleading title considering this card is very frozen with all the snow and ice! I used the brand spanking new January SOTMC stamp: Gliding By Sophia and the newly re-released Snowflake Kisses. I really really love this Sophia - just too cute!

The challenge details: Two weeks ago I challenged the Prettie Girls to use their Heat Guns. For my card I heat embossed some white snowflakes on a blue background... 'cause you can never have enough snow right?

For more inspiration check out what the rest of the Prettie Girls have made for this week's challenge:
Charmaine Ikach
Jackie Pedro
Jackie Rakoski
Jessica Diedrich
Jessica Rone
Jillian Winters
Jodi Collins
Julie Masse

Here is a close up of the super sweet new Sophia. I colored her with Copic markers and then masked so that I could sponge the background around her with Bashful Blue Classic ink. I also masked the ground around her feet to create the look of an ice rink, adding some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for an extra icy feel. Brrr....

To finish I stamped the sentiment a couple of times on Mellow Moss cardstock and cut out with a Word Window punch. These labels were then tied to the Chocolate ribbon with linen thread.
