Sketch challenge 204

Hi everyone! Are you all busy getting ready for Thanksgiving? I sorta am- my dd and I are trying to clean the house. I am doing what I am able. I am still not feeling well and my hubby has it pretty bad now too. So, it appears that we will be going out for dinner tomorrow. It actually sounds like a good idea to me at this point and then maybe just have my mom and m-i-l over for dessert after. I think I can handle that.

Well in between cleaning I did manage to make a card while I was taking a break- ok if you know me it was a long break LOL. I used some newly released images from DRS Designs for today's challenge.

I first stamped the 2 trees and colored them with copics. I then accented them with a white gel pen to look like snow and stickles. I used chalks to create the sky with the sun rising or setting. I painted the snow with angel wings shimmerz. The penguin was colored with copics and a spica glitter pen, cut out and adhered with pop dots to my scene. I ran the white card base layer and blue strip through my cuttlebug. The cardstock is a really pretty pearlescent that I found at Wal-mart and was pretty cheap. I stamped by snowflake bg on the white square and stamped my sentiment over that.

stamps- DRS designs D122, F179, H187, E638
CS- pearlescent white and blue, white, black
accessories- silver edge ribbon, chalks, stardust stickles, angel wings shimmerz, spica glitter pen, copics, black brads, corner rounder punch, snowflake cb folder
