Let's Try This Again!

Well...my attempt at creating a snowflake bombed!!! It actually didn't look that bad UNTIL I messed with it a little bit more! It is now safely in the trash lol!!! The snowflake you will see on my card today is smaller and is a different shape, but I think looks waaaaaaaaay better than the first. Believe me... you are not missing anything by my trashing that ugly snowflake!

Since I accidentally posted yesterday, but didn't have the card to go with it, you may have a feeling of deja vu! Don't you love Victoria Case images? This is the MOST FUN set ever!!! I had a very hard time choosing, they are all so adorable : ) Thanks, Victoria ♥ I finally narrowed it down to I Heart Powder, from the mini Winter Hearts and Hugs Set by Victoria Case for SCACD.

Isn't she a beauty? I know she looks cold in all that snow, but she's safely bundled up and ready to hit the slopes! The 'powder' is Polar White Flower Soft. She's even kicked up some of it on her shiny boots which have a coat of Diamond Glaze over them so her feet don't get soggy lol!

She's colored with my usual copics: Skin - E11 E21 E00 R20; Hair - E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Ski pants/jacket - B02 B01 B00 B000; Boots/Gloves - C9 C7 C5; Red accents - R29 R27 R24. The cozy fluffy detail on her ski attire is Sugar Sparkly Fluff. It was a snap to use over my Quickie Glue pen. You can get in the smallest areas with this pen. I LOVE it!

Challenges Entered:
Critter Sketch Challenge - Texture
Kaboodle Doodles - 1 solid, 2 patterns, 3 embellishments

Here's a closeup of attempt snowflake #2. Here's the deal... I tried to use a die cut with a piece of clear material. It wasn't a transparency, but much thicker. After going over it about 4 or 5 times, it left an impression, but didn't cut through...SO...I just cut around it with scissors. Hence... my poor attempt #2 as well. I am being brave to show you this lol!!! The clear sparkly material over the entire snowflake is Twinklets Diamond Dust. Then I adhered a snowflake button in the center and covered it with Stickles. Other than the shape, I am fairly pleased with the way it looks...
