First Snow

I just had to pull out First Taste of Snow for Karen's Doodles Challenge #100: Something Special. Although I ended up making a Christmas card, this card is really all about that great first snow of the year!

I kept to a white background and brown color scheme, inspired by the challenges at Come & Get It and Jingle Belles. The image only uses four Copic colors (well, plus pink for her cheeks & tongue) -- love coloring with Browns! The sentiment is a peel-off I've had in my stash for several years. I cut the flourish from a scrap of vellum with a Sizzix die.

Inspired by the Glitter theme at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge, I used a pre-glittered Core'dinations cardstock for the top portion, and also painted the white wood snowflake with Icicles Stickles. I put Polar White FlowerSoft on the snowflakes, so they have a shimmer too. I used ultra-fine white Flowersoft for the snowbank.

This is the most snow I've seen this year, which is fine by me!
