Let it Snow!

Today is my day to showcase one of Elisabeth Bell's Digital Stamps as a guest design team member at The Digi Bells DT blog - I am having such a wonderful time being one of their GDTs! I know it's nearly spring, but I love this digi so much I needed to do my first Christmas card of 2012, showcasing Elisabeth's "Frosty the Snowman" digi stamp.
I used Bo Bunny "smoochable" collection, as I was feeling rather springy ;) Also used my Cuttlebug to cut the Sizzix "BasicGrey" snowflakes and to emboss the DP with my snowflake folder and swiss dot folder for the bazzil snowflakes and small dots for the foundation mat.
The little snowflakes are from a Martha Stewart punch, along with her icicle border punch. The large ric-rac grosgrain and purple grosgrain are from my LSS. The metal embellies I've had for about 10 years - hoarding, of course - LOL. The sentiment is from Scribbles by Sandy via Free Digital Stamps and of course all colored up with my copics.
I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday
Even dolled up the inside a bit with the DP and snowflakes.
 Have a lovely first week of spring!
love,
Wendy
