I am getting all Sentimental over you.......................................

Good morning to you all out there in the land of blog
It is Friday, almost the weekend, and time for another fabulous challenge over at Winter Wonderland, where our very talented Marianne, has set the challenge of 

A recipe - Marianne would like to see 4 papers, 3 snowflakes and 1 snowman

and as our Sponsor this week is 
the Design Team have been given some lovely digital Robyn's Fetish images to use.  I really like this one and I have used it before but think it just says it all for this card.

But before I show you what I have created for this weeks Design Team Inspiration slot, I wanted to thank all those lovely people who created such stunning creations for my challenge last week, I again managed to get around to all of you and enjoyed seeing what you all wanted for Xmas.

So this week I have created an easel card, but used a sentiment as the centre piece, here it is
The papers are from my recent top up shop at the Hobby House, I love these papers and find they co ordinate so well.  The inspiration for this card came from the sketch at Sketch Saturday
 So the image location has been changed to the main sentiment the little story of the melting snowman who leaves his hat behind, I flipped the sketch left to right and added the small hat in place of the sentiment, it just fitted so well with the end of the sentiment.  

I used one of my MS edge punches and used a large cuttle bug die for the big snowflake and then a Marianne creatable for the middle snowflake. This was created from some dotty velum and then the tiny silver snowflake from a punch.  The brad was originally a clear diamante one from the Hobby House, which I have coloured with copics as was the velum. The snowflake silver charm again from the Hobby House and hung from behind the snowflake brad.  The sentiment has a colour effect on it, I used a sponge and one of my Big Juicy pads. Silver foil thin card, was the base contrast colour.
This is a close up of the inked sentiment along with the little red hat.  The glitter you can see is added by using a slightly larger finger lift tape and the ribbon running down the middle of it, then when you add the glitter it sticks to the very thin edge either side of the ribbon. 
This is the inner return with the Robyn's Fetish image of the Melting Snowman, with another sentiment to assure us he will be back next year.  I added little diamante to the MS edge punch on the inner return and on the top one the turquoise diamante both of these were from the Hobby House. I added a little bow using the Capsule Range collection with another little diamante in its centre.  The image was coloured with the preferred media of copics.
Here is a close up of the frosted die cut snowflake with the velum snowflake coloured on top, with the centre silver snowflake and the very large coloured diamante brad.  The Snowflake charm hanging down on it's little chain.  
Please see the link above for where I shop if you are interested in anything I have mentioned.

I really like this one, ooops yet another favorite I think.
