# 94 Snowflakes & Snowmen

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - snowmen & snowflakes
Sponsor & prize this week - Robyn's Fetish (5 digi images of your choice).

All the DT are using images from our sponsor this week and the snowman featured on the front of my card today is called 'Carl the Snowman'.  He was of course, coloured with Promarkers.  The blue & white snowflake design papers are digis from Jak Heath and I distressed the edges before adding acrylic paint to them for tiny snowdrifts. Well, in my imagination they are so you will have to bear with me! LOL.  Keeping with the drifted snow idea, on the lower part of the card for Carl to stand on, I tore pearlescent card, (the same as the main card base), topping the revealed core with Stickles for reflecting iciness. The individual blue snowflakes behind the snowman were also glitzed with Stickles as were the tiny white card ones (residue from a MS punch & the large one behind the sentiment which was cut using Marianne Creatable dies. The sentiment itself is from Raindrop Echo Designs.  To give me dimension on all the various layers on the card front, I used a combination of both silicone glue & foam pads.

...& on the inside.

For the inside of the card I toned down the layering to make it flatter for posting, edging the sentiment I had created on the PC as before but not on the rest of the layers. I used an image here too, again from our sponsor (called 'Snow Days are Fun Days', which I thought worked well with the image on the front) &  I faded it out slightly so I could hand write the 'from' over it later.

    As for shoveling vs snowman making...I don't know, whenever we make snowmen things turn violent and more than one person ends up with snow down his/her back. LOL
