Jingles Belles : Sketchy Holiday

Happy Monday!! I'm a bit late in posting my card for Jingle Belles Sketchy Holiday challenge, but , hey,better late than never!!!
Anyhoo, here's Allison's  awesome sketch.....

I played around with a new stamp set I got on clearance at Michaels ( I sooooo love sales!!!!) and My Minds Eye DP.

I love snowmen.... and this one is my new favorite!!!I stamped this guy in Baja Breeze and used Crumb Cake ( kraft) , Early Expresso and Riding Hood inks /papers to coordinate with the DP. The fabric is from SU!'s  2010 Holiday mini. I stiched it  so it was scrunched up and then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist, I wish you could see how it adds just a wee hint of glimmer , but the photo just doesn't show it well!!!! You'll have to take my word for it!!!! :) I used a strip of blue MME paper , which I misted and scrunched up before adhering to the card. The sentiment is stamped in Riding Hood red and handcut and popdotted up to stand out from the layers. Oh, and there's lot's of inking here,too! On the card edges, aroound the snowmman and even on the sentiment! If I could find a place to ink, I did!!!! And those little pearls on my snowguy.... they are a fabulous find at my local dollar store!!! I have a whole bunch of them and I sure love to use'em,too!!!! I machine stitched the DP and a few glimmer brads on the edge and I think I'm just about outta room to add anymore layers!!!
This is a busy card, but it really was pretty quick to make.... honestly!! Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Until next time..... Happy Crafting!!
