Bellarific Friday: Add Snow

Hi all,
Welcome to another wonderful Friday in Bellaland!  The weather is getting colder and colder here in Toronto, and I'm not ready for this week's challenge :-(
Last week on the Bloggabella, Em challenged us to add snow to our cards. Can you believe the nerve??? Haha ;-P

Well, adding fake snow is fine, I suppose.  As long as I get some more time without the real stuff, I think I'll be OK.

So here's my submission for the challenge:

My card base is Soft Suede CS, and the patterned papers are from SU's Christmas Cocoa DSP pack, with black CS mats.  I rounded the corners on the middle layer, and the bottom layer was punched with the Martha Stewart snowflake edge punch. 

I stamped the new Quinn in her Boots from the Uptown Girls collection on Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I actually didn't use any Copics again - GASP.  I coloured the whole thing with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  Wanna know something important I learned from Paulabella?  When you are going to colour something with red pencil crayon, leave that part until THE END.  Solid advice!
I sponged around the outside with Wheat Versamagic ink, and I added some fun glitter dots all around her.  For my snow, I stuck some fun Flower Soft (Ivory colour) under her feet.  Love the texture! 
The sentiment comes with the image - that was stamped with black ink onto white CS, then matted with black.

Next week's challenge??? Holiday wishes!  We need to see some Christmas and holiday cards desperately!  Make a holiday card using any of the images sold at Stamping Bella and submit to Emily ( by Thursday night.  You'll be entered to win some Bella Bucks, and your card will be published on Emily's blog!

BTW - us Bella Babes were wondering if you can give us your opinion.  What challenges do you like to see?  What do you like to participate in the most and what are your favourite types of projects to make?  Leave a comment on here, or over on Emily's blog letting her know!  We are gathering valuable information!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
