Sketch Challenge - Winter Post

I stamped this card over the weekend using the Stampin Addicts Sketch Challenge - SASC75. The sweet ice skating couple from Winter Post always call my name this time of year and I decided to go with browns and lots of shine. I added the smallest snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes stamp set and the script background stamp, En Francais. The sentiment is from Thank You Kindly stamp set - a great little set of 4 different thank you stamps.

I Heat Embossed the skaters image with Clear Embossing Powder and then colored it in with the White Pencil from my Watercolor Pencils. The snowflakes are stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink and then Heat Embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Then I sponged the edges of this circle and around the snowflakes a bit as well. This is adhered to a mat from the Scallop Circles #2 die for the Big Shot.

Here's a closer look at some of the detail surrounding the main image. I ran my Two Way Glue Pen around the Crumb Cake circle and pressed it into the Silver Glass Glitter for some sparkle. I also stamped the background with the snowflakes in Whisper White Craft Ink and Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and sponged it. The banner is stamped in Early Espresso Ink and Heat Embossed with the Clear Embossing Powder. Then I gave it a curl and adhered it down, secured with a couple of brads from the Vintage Brads set.
