HM Challenge #17 "Let It Snow!"

Here is my card for this weeks House ~ Mouse Challenge. I sure have enjoyed creating these cards the past two weeks. This is the Muzzy To/From Stamp# HMER1011. I stamped the image with ranger archival ink in jet black on Cason 100 Aquarella 130# cold press watercolor paper. The image is was then colored in using Prisama colored pencils and Gamsol with blending stumps. I embossed the card with the Cuttlebug snowflake plate to keep in the let it snow theme. I them put red and green rhinestones in the center of the snowflakes. The card was then embellished with a stacked snowflake also keeping in the snow theme. The Snowflake was cut out using the Quickutz revolution and die with the white Doddlebug sugar coated paper. I used various punches for the scallops and Karen Fosters "Christmas Stripes" for the printed paper strip.
