Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #48

I have finally admitted to myself that I am a sketch addict. I just love them. I struggle so much with layouts of cards (and scrapbook pages) that sketches are like a dream come true to me.
That being said, I just had to play along with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge this week!! What a fun sketch!!

I don't know why but I'm enjoying making different types/sizes of cards lately. Guess it's fun to break up the routine a bit.

Here's my creation~

What I did:
I started by stamping Victoria Case's Lil' Snowman in Memento ink onto my cardstock and colored the image with copics. 
Can't have a snowman without sparkle so I added some Martha Stewart glitter and snow to the image with my quickie glue pen and then let it dry overnight.
A must have when working with glitter or other fun sparkly stuff is the glitter clean up cloth. I really like how easy and well this works!
Next I cut out my image, picked my papers, embossed the white and pink cardstocks, adhered everything and added some embellisments. I didn't add any sparkle to the snowflakes as I wanted the lil' snowman to stand out.
One little tip on this card too. Since the striped paper was a scrap, it wasn't long enough. All I did was cut it in half and hide the cut behind the image panel.
