Guest Designer Post for Paper Sweeties February Challenge

I'm very excited to be a Guest Designer over at the Paper Sweeties monthly challenge this month! Thanks, Debbie, for inviting me! 
For my card base, I used a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store and cut out the easel part with purple paper. Then I used some pink heart patterned CTMH paper for the background to this darling snowgirl by Paper Sweeties. I colored a doily with a gray lilac marker to match the third color on this month's inspiration board. 
I stamped and die cut the little snowgirl, snowflakes and snowbank using Paper Sweeties "Thanks Snow Much" die and stamp bundle. The "Thanks Snow Much" and "You Melt My Heart" sentiments were also part of this great set! I colored the little snowgirl with Copic and MEXPY markers and stamped a second image so I could cut out the pompoms on her hat and adhere them with foam tape for some dimension on the image. I adhered the snowflakes with foam squares and the die cut "You Melt My Heart" stitched heart with foam tape. 
Here's a look at the full "Thanks Snow Much" bundle:
Paper Sweeties has great stamps and dies, as well as fun embellishments like crinkle ribbon. Be sure to visit their store at And join in on this month's challenge on their blog for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the store!
