Your Next Stamp Challenge

Yay! I have another Your Next Stamp Challenge today! Our challenge was set by Kerri and is to use this fabulous sketch:

And here's what I came up with:

I used the set Let It Snow and some super cute papers from My Mind's Eye.

I stamped the snowman twice and colored with Copics. I cut out one full snowman and then just the hat and scarf from the second and layered those pieces on the first with foam boosters. The whole snowman was also popped up on foam boosters. The snowflake was cut from glitter cardstock with a Sizzix die and I tied a button to the center with crochet thread. I distressed all the edges of the papers and did some machine stitching to finish it off. Finished card size is 4.5" x 5.5".

We hope you'll play along with us! One lucky participant will be drawn at random to win the Cupcake Cutie Single Stamp!! You don't have to use YNS images on your card, but if you do you'll get a double entry in the draw!

Also, the challenge hostess will choose her favorite card, and that winner will get the YNS Challenge "Top Pick" blinkie to proudly display on their blog PLUS a $5 gift certificate to spend at the Your Next Stamp store!

Full details can be found at the YNS Challenge Blog. TFL!
