It's a chilly one here in MN today! I can only imagine how this little cardinal's butt must feel sitting on that branch! lol

I tried to capture the shimmer and sparkle on this card, but the lighting or the camera (or a combo) just wasn't doing it, so you'll have to take my word for it. lol (you can click on the pics for a closer look)

The image is from Mr. Willie & Friends set (Plum Purdy Designs) and is colored with Copic markers. The snow is covered in a light coating of Cotton Ball White Fun Flock. To get the sparkle on the snow I touched the Fun Flock ever-so-lightly with the tip of my glue pen and sprinkled on the glitter.

Once everything was colored, flocked and sparkled I sprayed the entire image with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels) and set it with my heat tool. (have you tried the Ranger Heat It yet? OMGosh it's fabulous! All heat and no air to blow your embossing powder all over the table!)

The sentiment is from Snowfall (PTI) and I used SC249 for my sketch. Fancy Pants papers (love love those papers!) and a snowflake CB embossing folder finished it all off.

Keep warm today!
