DYSU Challenge # 53 - Let it Snow


Hey everyone! 
Time for a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?! This week we want you to LET IT SNOW!!  So grab a cup of your favorite hot drink and join in the fun of creating some snowy project.




This week’s sponsors are:


Meljen's Designs - Winner's choice of 4 images

Robyn's Fetish - Winner's choice of 5 images or 4 images + 1 paper pack 


Crafter's Companion - The Boxer and Envelobox Creator Bundle with Advanced Techniques DVD


                                       
My little bit of inspiration for you this week uses this sweet image from Robyn's Fetish called "There's Snow Place Like Snow Home". As there was not a lot of colouring to do, I paper pieced the heart and added lots of Stickles to add interest. I also used Glossy Accents on the star and his eyes.

Close up of the image and the Stickles.

The snowflakes have been embossed with a gorgeous crystal powder. I coloured one with a Powder Blue Promarker 

Recipe:
Medium - Promarkers and Adirondak "Stonewashed" ink for distressing edges of papers.
Papers - freebie from "Birds Cards"
Snowflakes - cut on my Cricut
Embossing powder - Crystal Sparkle
Stickles - Stardust
Glitter - My Craft Studio "Crystal"
Gems and ribbon - stash
Sentiment - freebie from "When the Scrap Hits the Fun"

So now it's your turn, come join us at DYSU and show us see your snowy creation.  There are some great prizes up for grabs and we have 2 new DT members who I'm sure would love to receive some encouraging comments from you for their first creation for the team.  We also welcome Pauline G who was part of the original team and I am glad to say, has agreed to come back.
Hugs
Denise xx

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
The Pink Elephant #129 - Anything Goes
Inky Impressions #40 - Anything Goes
