Anything Goes with A Spoon Full of Sugar

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Anything goes is this week's challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar.   Check out the DT's fabulous creations for inspiration and get inky for a chance to win a $10 GIft Certificate from our generous sponsor DRS Designs.

My card features Snowy Hug which is available at the Magnolia-licious online store but currently on re-order.  I loooooove this image b/c it reminds me of the snowmen we make every year at the first snowfall.  I used non-holiday papers from my stash which were cut and ready to go but can't remember if they were part of a class kit so I don't have any info on the papers, flowers or buttons.  The rhinestone snowflakes are a recent find at my local dollar store.  The felt ribbon is a recycled piece from my daughter's blouse.  It was 2 long pieces used to tie a bow at the back but one half of it came off so I clipped the other half and will save it to use for more cards.  My family ROFL at my idea but I love it and I know my friend Leah would be ooooh so proud of my attempt to recycle and reuse ~ hahaha!

I meant to stamp the Imaginisce Be Merry sentiment with Vintage Sepia Versafine to match the CS but used Versafine Black Onyx.  It was a bit stark so my friend Zoe suggested I haze it a bit with the brown so its now blurry/smudgey/hazey on purpose in case you're wondering ~ lol.  BTW a little TIP:  I find Versafine ink works the absolute best for clear stamps and sentiments and doesn't leave that bubbly look impression like other inks.

I'm entering the following challenges:
Thanks for your visit.

Wow you sure have a busy day having 2 posts on the same day Maria, but both of your projects are wonderful. That's a cute way to see you putting the bling snowflake on the flower. Adds a great embellie touch :o)
