Let It Snow!

There's a challenge going on over at Stamping With The Dragon.  The theme this time is In The Winter Garden.  And the sponsor is Rick St Dennis.  Here is a little bit about him.

Designer of over 100 theatrical productions, Rick St. Dennis (Donald McAfee) is also the author of 4 books on decorative painting and contributor to at least a dozen national magazines on crafts and art.  He is one of a handful of designers to have designed TWO productions of AIDA, Verdi's massive Egyptian opera spectacle.  Currently living in the quiet beach community of Seal Beach, California, he writes restaurant reviews and theater reviews between assignments for web designs, logos and creating art for local shows.  St. Dennis has appeared on such TV shows as Home Matters with Susan Powell, Aileen's Crafts and others.  He was crafts editor for Country Folk Art Magazine and sold his artwork nationally through galleries and shows.  Among numerous awards he won a presidential commendation in 1976 for his contributions to the bicentennial year including the design of the west coast premier of William Grant Still's opera BAYOU LEGEND.

I have used one of his digital stamps for my card.  This is Isabella Making Snow Friends.  I made another tent card using SU cardstock and the designer paper is Cosmo Cricket.  I also used a sparkly white glitter paper from my stash for the snow and snowflakes.  My sentiment is from Crafter's Companion.  The die cuts that I used are Spellbinder Circle and Scallop Circle; Memory Box Frostyville and Bianca Snowflake.  I used SU Oval and Scallop Oval punches and Martha Stewart Snowflake punch.  I added Stickles Crystal glitter glue to the fur on her snowsuit to add some sparkle.  And the gems are from my stash.  Here is another view.

Copic Markers used:
C5, C7, E000, E00, E01, E23, E25, E27,
R20, V20, V22, V25, Y23, Y26, YG61, YG63
