Lily Pad Sketch Challenge.

 I made a quick card for the sketch challenge over at The Lily Pad Blog today, its sponsored by Hero Arts and the prize is $50  to spend on HA products.  What a fabulous prize, I wouldn't have any trouble choosing $50 worth!!! The DT have all followed a Christmas theme  and all the cards are amazing so it wasn't hard to be inspired. 
My card is really simple, I have used the HA snow globe stamp and masked out the globe so I could just use the snowman image.  After stamping I have coloured with copics, adding some Glaze pen to his hat for shine.  The snow is a flowersoft like substance that I got at a local craft shop.  The PP is from My Minds Eye and it actually was a free gift with a craft magazine!!  Wow love free gifts like this!!

Just thought I would show another card, I was totally taken with this card that Vicky made and just had to get that snowman stamp, such a cute image.  The background is made using the HA snowflake circle and my new pot of Distress stain.  I have only got one to try it out but I think I will be getting more soon, totally love the effect.
My computer is playing up and the bottom of the photo is a little distorted.  Hope I can fix the problem soon.
Hope you have had a good weekend.

Both cards are adorable Sally. That snowman is too cute with his fluffy scarf. Sounds like the Distress stains are good. Might have to get some. That blue background looks stunning.
