Snowball Maddie and Snowy Mountains

The weekly challenge on Spiral Whisper this week is 'Cold Winter'. The challenge runs until Tuesday and the prize is the gorgeous 'Snowball Maddie' stamp designed by the very talented Sally-Ann Hancock. I've teamed the gorgeous Maddie up with my Snowy Mountains background stamp design for Spiral Whisper, I think they go perfectly together. Images stamped with Versafine ink, pencil coloured and blended with Sansodor. I've matted the background image on dark blue bazzil card and popped up on dimension tape over the card blank which has been embossed in the cuttlebug. Maddie is cut out and also mounted on dimension tape. The little circular sentiment is by Stamps Away and mounted on a nestabilities cut scalloped circle. Everthing has been liberally sprinkled with Deco Art Glamour Dust which is lovely and sparkly and much finer than ordinary glitter. TFL and good luck if you enter the challenge.

Back soon,
Chris

I cannot begin to tell you how very much I love this card!! At the moment, I am saving my pennies so I can purchase this beautiful background stamp and an Elzybells stamp that could be paired with it.

Your cards always brighten my day, and lately I have needed as much brightening as possible. Thank you for your kind words, encouragement, and neverending inspiration. I am proud to know someone as wonderful as you!!!

Hugs!
Carolyn
