Lia Stampz - Challenge #53 - Use Your Paper Scraps

Hello again!

Today starts a new challenge over at Lia Stampz. Challenge #53 is "Use Your Paper Scraps." I actually don't have much for paper scraps. I'm not sure if that's because I use them all up, or if I just don't cut into enough paper! ;o)

I did find these bits and pieces left over from a previous card. I think I am now left with a 2" square. The super sweet Lia Stampz image is called  Haley. You can find it in the Whimsy Shop right HERE.

My card is pretty self-explanatory. It was a really fun image to color! I added Stickles to the snowflake punches, Liquid Pearls to the top of the sign and the hat pom-pom, and then I added both to the snow pile. I think most of you know how I feel about the snow, so "Enjoy" is the perfect sentiment for this card. Finally, I added this super delicate bow because the die was brand new and I just had to use it! 

Please gather up a few of your scraps, create something, and come on over and join us at Lia Stampz! You could win a prize or be chosen as the Spotlight Artist!

Have a fabulous weekend, my friends! Would it be awful if I wished you all a wonderful snowfall? lol We have lots in our forecast, so maybe I'll enjoy it for all of you instead! :o)

Image: Lia Stampz - Haley;
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;

What a cute card!! That's the type of snow I enjoy, on paper LOL. Actually if it snows just long enough for me to take a few pictures I'm happy. I'm loving that IO bow die. It's so delicate looking. Blessings!
