Let it Snow

Time for a new challenge at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog & our theme is All Wrapped Up--use a coat, hat, scarf or gloves on your project.  I had fun paper piecing this cute Penny Black snowman--happy soul, 4106K.  Light blue & red is one of the color combos I like to use for Christmas cards.  I also used silver for the star, ornament & mat.  I used embossing paste with my SSS snowfall stencil & immediately added Rock Candy glitter.  The snow drifts were made by tearing the paper & adding Stickles to the edge. Stickles is also added to the hat & scarf.  I colored the bird & his nose with markers and added Crystal Lacquer.  The sentiment is from Penny Black's crystalline, 30-018 & is stamped in Memento Nautical Blue.  For lots more inspiration, check out the wonderful work of my teammates: Debby, Frida, Helen, Lorraine, Nat, Sue & Sylvie.  Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
I'm also entering the SSS Flickr Challenge & SSS Wed.
