Green Snowflakes!

I love non-traditional colors for the holidays, and green snowflakes have got to be my favorite! (yes, it could be 'cuz green is my favorite color. lol) So, when I saw the Breezy Freezy line (Cosmo Cricket) I squeeeeled!

The snowman and sentiment are from Sharing the Holidays (Plum Purdy Designs). I colored him with Copic markers and sparkled up the snow with glitter. The "frame" around the image is done using the Copic Airbrush System. I placed a square scallop Nestability with a post-it note covering the center over the image and sprayed E31 around the edge. Then I ran a 2-way glue pen around the edge and dipped it in glitter.

I stamped the sentiment on cardstock with the intention of cutting it out with an oval Nestie. But, I realized I stamped too close to the edge of the paper and I couldn't center it in the Nestie. Not wanting to waste a perfectly good stamped sentiment, I attached a piece of polka dot paper (October Afternoon) and then cut out the oval. I kinda like the look!

What is your favorite non-traditional color?

OMG! I love the green. Your card is fabulous. All the green pattern paper and the happy snowman. You've inspired me to try green. I usually go with the traditional blue or brown/cream- when I'm wild I go with violet. ;) TFS your fab card!
