Welcome to the final day of the blog hop!  For today's card, I wanted to share a card for winter.  I apologize that I was unable to get a better shot of all the glitter I put under the snowman that looks like snow. 

For the background, I once again created a layered effect with my cover a card stamps.  I used the brand new Splattered stamp with Colorbox Chalk Ice Blue ink and then added the Cover a Card Snowflakes on top with Colorbox Calk Azurite ink.  The Splattered stamp is a really good one to use as a base color.  It adds a slight mottled look to your cardstock that pretty much works with anything you choose to layer on top of it.

For the central image, I used the new snowman named Sandy along with the Season's Greetings sentiment.  I colored the snowman with various Copic markers and then added some stickles to the wings for sparkle.  Under the snowman, I added liquid glue from Art Glitter as well as some loose glitter.  The liquid glue added dimension and texture that looked more like a snowbank.
