S&S Digi Day at Paper Craft Planet!

Hello folks!! I had intended to post this first thing this morning...but my day has gone a little haywire!!

Grab a cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa ;), and join the Sweet 'n Sassy team over at our group on Paper Craft Planet for our Digi Day!! This is the card I made to fit in with our challenge...use snowflakes on your project! The snowflakes can be in your image, on your paper, part of your embellishments...let your creativity loose! Korin will be offering up a FREE DIGI for anyone who plays along with the challenge before Monday morning, as well as an earlybird digi for those entering the challenge before 10:00 pm EST tonight!!

The digi I chose to use is Sweet Cocoa. Honestly, how adorable is this little mouse? This was just the perfect image to use, since Cocoa's mug has snowflakes all over it! After colouring with Copic markers, I gave the snowflakes a coat of Stardust Stickles and added Glossy Accents to the candy cane. I really found myself wishing I had some liquid applique for those marshmallows, but alas...I have none!! So just pretend with me that the marshmallows are all fluffy!

I had a few patterned papers with snowflakes in my stash, but I wanted to go with something other than Christmas papers. I love the patchwork pattern of this paper, and the muted colours. I decided to run my burgundy cardstock through the Cuttlebug with some Snowflake Spellbinders...however, I only embossed this time. I highlighted the embossed background with white ink, and followed with more Stardust Stickles. The sentiment from Hot Cocoa Sentiments.

So what are you waiting for?! Get yourself over to the Sweet 'n Sassy group at PCP to join in the fun!!
