A Die For A Sketch - Challenge #7

Happy Wednesday!
It's the 5th of the month again already, and that means it's time for a new challenge over at A Die For A Sketch. I'm happy to say that we have six talented new Design Team Members! You'll find all their links in my sidebar. Please give each of their blogs a visit when you have time!
I'm also very happy to report that we have some fabulous companies sponsoring our challenges from now on. So not only do you have the opportunity to participate in a fun challenge with very simple rules, and earn a Top 3 Button, but you also have the chance to win some fantastic prizes!
This month our generous sponsor is Bugaboo Digi Stamps, and the winner will receive 7 wonderful images! Wow!!

Here is this month's great sketch:

Here is my card! The Design Team was given a Bugaboo image to work with, and this image is called "Winter Birds - Snowman". Isn't it cute? It was so much fun to color!

I thought I had some white flock to add to the bird's hat but I didn't, so I used Liquid pearls instead. The snowflakes and the Snowman are covered with glitter but I had a really hard time getting it to show in a photo. Yes, it's still dreary and snowing here! I've also stitched around the card with a red thread that has some wonderful glitter to it. This is the best I could do:

Materials Used:

Papers: Recollections - Cardstock,
Hot Off the Press - Christmas Creative Pad;
Image: Bugaboo Digi Stamps
Colored with my Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;
Sentiment Stamp: Gina K Design;
Ink: Momento -Tuxedo Black;
Medium: Ranger Liquid Pearls - White Opal;
Brads: Recollections;
Fine Glitter: My Stash;
Thread: DMC Red Metallic;
Dies: Sizzix Sizzlits - Scribbles Swirls,
MM Slice Design Card - Fa la la.

* * * * * 

Pop on over to A Die For A Sketch and take a look at what the rest of the Design Team has made!
 Then make a project: a card, a layout in any size, or a gift bag. Link it up by January 4th!
You have a wonderful opportunity to win Top 3 recognition, or to win a great prize!
The only rules are to use the sketch and a die...and have lots of fun! 

I hope you all have a wonderful week full of JOY and laughter! :o)
