Snow in April


Well, thankfully no snow here in April, but it was a cold, rainy, dreary weekend where snow wouldn't have felt out of place, aside from the calendar.
I made this card using the current sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, attracted in part by that fun element of a sentiment down the side. I turned to one of my fave snowmen images, from Paper Cupcakes, which ceased business several years ago. The image is colored with pencils, with Wink of Stella on the snowy parts.
Aside from the green panel, this was a project that ate up snippets -- hurray. I really like it when it's just a matter of trimming the tiniest bit off a snippet but using it pretty much as it was (thereby preventing you from creating even more, smaller snippets) and I accomplished that will all the snippets here.

This card is entered in these challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #133 -- use sketch
Pixie's Snippet Playground #323 -- use snippets
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge #380 -- Christmas
