Snow Taster

Well, I don't know about tasting the stuff but I do know we have a lot of snow here in southwest Saskatchewan, Canada.  It's pile up everywhere... the fields are covered and the ditches are full.  I know spring is just around the corner and it can't get here soon enough for me!
Today is the beginning of another challenge at Christmas and Sweet Stampin' and the theme this next month is No Red or Green.  Our sponsor is Flatfriends and up for grabs is four of their fabulous digis.
No red or green... hmmmm... how about purple?  I love purple and My Mind's Eye has some fabulous papers in their So Sophie - Graceful collection and this seems a little Christmasy to me (especially the gold berry piece) so that's what I chose.  The image is Eat Cake Graphics 4027-G Waldo Bear and the sentiment is also from Holly's shop and is 8191-E Official Snow Taster.  I have some pretty purple glitter paper so I used that for the die cuts.  The snowflake is Impression Obsession's Snowflake die, the corner is Joycraft's 6002/0136 and the circle is Memory Box's Frostyville Wreath.  The buttons were white but turned out to be a pretty good match once they were coloured with Copics.  Finally, I used a Viva Pearl pen for the snowflakes and done!
Copics:  I used E95, E97 and E99 to colour the bear.

Hi Marilyn, Your card is so adorable. Such a sweet image and a cute sentiment to go with it. I love your colour combo - when I saw your card, I thought those where Christmas papers. The die cuts look stunning in glitter paper.

Oh why oh why can I not taste snow. I try and try but it has no taste. Perhaps we should ask God to add some chocolate - now that would be mighty fine.
Beautifully done Marilyn - you know your cards turn me on!!!!!
