Welcome Winter

For sketch challenge #77 at Sketch N Stash (their final challenge for 2011) I pulled out some retired DSP from SU to use for the background and notched strips.  I also dug into my Stickles stash and added some to the snowdrifts and snowflakes.  Crystal Effects was used on the streetlight, along with some glitter pens to add sparkle to the light.  See the white brad like embellishments?  There are actually glittered plastic "snowballs" from my winter embellishment drawer.  So fun to use these seasonal papers and embellishments from my stash!

The image is from Paper Cupcakes that you can get here.  I mainly colored it in with Copics and added some sponged blue ink to the background.  The "fur" on the bird's hat is Liquid Pearls.  I'm also entering this card into the challenge at There's Magic In The Air, their last challenge for 2011 as well.

Off to stamp some more!
