Throwback Thursday

Happy Thursday Everyone!

It's in the 90's and humid here in Texas and I'm making snowman cards!  Wishful thinking maybe????

Today's card features two older Stampin' Up! sets:  1 - Frosty (I used the snowflake from that set), and 2 - Sweet and Simple Salutations (the snowman is from this set).  My card combines two challenges (hmmm, seems to be a two theme happening here).  I'm participating in the color challenge at Dynamic Duos and the sketch challenge at Retro Sketches.

And here is my finished card:

Isn't he sweet?  I colored his scarf and hat with Bashful Blue and his ornaments with Marina Mist and accented a couple of them with white gel pen.  You can't really see it, but his hat pom and the snow below him have shimmery accents courtesy of my clear Atyou Spica pen.  I thought about using Dazzling Details, but I wanted a more subtle effect.

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
