Tuesday Morning Sketches #152

Good Morning!  Happy Tuesday!  This is the 2nd installment this week of some cards I am really super proud of.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

The sketch is up at TMS and it's cute - even if I do say so myself.  Our challenge sponsored by Paper Garden and I've used their digi Snowman image.  No, I am not rushing to the winter season, I just can't resist an adorable snowman.

I am really pleased with my color combo, too.  I never would've thought to put Kraft together with a pastel color.  But I went out on a limb and decided to try out an idea that I had.  I embossed blue piece with the snowflakes embossing folder and then I sponged on white craft ink.  After that I spritzed with Shimmer spray.  Love the results!

Here's a close up...

Look in the lower right corner, you can see it pretty well.

There are some other fabulous cards from the design team there that are sure to inspire you.
