Snowmen Selfie

     Welcome to my 4th post of the day today, this one for SheepSki Designs.  Be sure to scroll down to see the other DT projects I did for today.

     The theme for our challenge at Sheepski this month is to make it "Sparkle and Shine."  I chose a fun image called "Snowman Selfie" and I absolutely love the idea of a snow family taking selfies at their winter reunions.  I'm sure they use them for their Christmas cards.  :-D

     I did a monochromatic of reds (with neutral grays) using my ProMarkers.  I cut the image with a simple, square die from QuicKutz, then inked the edges.  The red CS is dry embossed with a poinsettia folder from Darice and I layered the image onto it, then added it to a card base made from gray CS.

     Each of the tiny ornament embellies has glitter added for sparkle and is cut from shiny silver paper.  The white star is a die cut (Cheery Lynn) and I covered it in glitter.  The silver ribbon is sparkly and the red satin ribbon, including the hand tied bow, has a polished shine.
