Technostamper challenge 232

Happy Tuesday!!  Well this week I was determined to make a card and a post to my blog...  So here is the sketch for this week's Technostamper Challenge. 

 I used the new Frosty Friends stamp set from the Christmas catalog that you can order from tomorrow!!  Frosty Friends is stamped on a piece of whisper white cardstock and layered on a piece of gumball green.  The card base is also a piece of gumball green with a piece of Raspberry Ripple.  I then used the snowflake embossing folder to emboss the background with whisper white.

NOTE:  A little lesson that I learned -  Stamp your message on the lower left corner before you emboss the white background.  I didn't do this and tried to fill in my message with a marker and it just didn't come out well.

Here is a closeup of the snowmen.  Thanks to my SIL Sarah for coloring them in for me..  she is much better at watercoloring than I am...  LOL

The buttons are highlighted by the new mini brads in the catalog.  You could also use a little dazzling details to highlight the string of lights.

Don't forget to check out what my other stampin' friends have created using this sketch!!

I can't decide if I want this set or not! I love this card, and I love snowman but I have so stinking many of them! Just like snowflakes. Anyway, you may have pushed me over with this cutie. Great card, thanks so much for playing along this week with my sketch challenge!
