Double D Challenge: Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

Welcome to another Double D challenge!  I'll admit I get a little excited when it snows, but that's because it happens so seldom here and then it melts away quickly.  Whether you love snow or not, it does make a pretty winter card, so we're hoping to see plenty of it in our Double D Challenge -- Let it Snow!  Let it Snow!  Let it snow!

I've used a Stamping Bella stamp called Frida Loves Frosty and a Power Poppy Nice Things to Say sentiment.




Here's our very snowy mood board:




And a snowflakey prize for a random winner:




I colored with Copic markers and added plenty of sparkle.  I'll list details in the recipe below my signature.




You'll find lots more info and wonderful team samples on the Double D blog.   Warm hugs to all!


Stamps:  Stamping Bella Frida Loves Frosty, Power Poppy Nice Things to Say  Paper:  Neenah Classic White and 110 lb white, SU Pool Party  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics for coloring  Accessories:  Stickles Stardust glitter glue  Dies:  Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangles, Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangle Stacklets, Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers, Poppystamps Heart Sprinkle Sash

Such a pretty card. I have such a soft spot for snowmen - I used to love making them when I was a kid! I love the scalloped border and the little hearts floating above the image! Such a cute picture with them hugging! Merry Christmas!

Oh my, what an adorable image, I just love snowmen! It's a perfect image for the challenge Leslie. Oh my, where do I begin - beautifully coloured, love the way you did the pointillism around the snowman and the way you did the mounds of snow around the image. Lovely framework, great colours. The warm hugs sentiment with the little heart, just melts my heart! Beautiful card Leslie, I'm so glad you shared today, makes me smile!

Beautiful card. I love the image. It just makes me smile. You did a fantastic job with adding the sparkle. Seeing this makes me want to build a snowman. Can I do that without any snow?? LOL! Thank you too for the adorable Christmas card you sent. Mine are a little plain this year, but at least I got some done.

What a sweet pair Leslie! They look cozy :) Love those touches of sparkle too. I think those soft blue greens are amoung my favourite for any type of card, but they’re perfect for frosty winter!

I find snow-folks to be irresistible and this one with Frida is no exception. Inquiring minds want to know how DID you get the red scarf to look so textured? I just love the sweet coloring and all that stitching! The pink is a perfect color addition!
