Sketch Saturdays Challenge with Belles 'n Whistles Snowbaby

Hi there, I thought I'd share a card that I made over the weekend.  I decided to combine my Belles 'n Whistles Card with this weeks Sketch Saturday Challenge.  This one is sooooo totally out of my normal style, (not the sketch, but the color combo) but I just had to give it a try.  I love this image though, and thought that it was the perfect time to use it.  She's such a little cutie, as she's laying in the snow making a snow angel.  Of course her name simple.  She is called "Snow Angel Snowbaby"  I absolutely LOVE working with Elisabeth Bell designs!  After all, she is the Super Sweet and Talented designer behind all of the Belles 'n Whistles images.  =) 
Just a quick reminder,  
The Snowbabies collection, is a collection with a cause! Everytime you purchase a Snowbaby stamp Summer will donate 10% of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Research!  Isn't that awesome?

okay I suppose I will show you the card I made.

Do you know why I say "I suppose I'll show you?"  Because I'm unsure if I like the outcome or not.  Okay Okay, I LOVE the image, and I love the snow boots, mittens, and hats paper, but really I needed to tie into the yellow shades there, and OHHHHH Yellow is just NOT my choice of colors to use.  But I can't really complain too much, The image alone really makes this card adorable.  What do you think?

The little details of this card are.....  the Snow Angel Snowbaby was colored with Copics, as is the background behind her.  I added some perfect pearls to give it a shimmered appearance as well as adding some white styrofoam ... yes that's what I said...  You know the styrofoam balls you use for crafting?  Well if you rub them together they leave a mess, but this mess works wonders for making things look like snow...  ha ha....

The sentiment is computer generated, and the snowflakes are punched from a Martha Stewart punch.  I just LOVE that snowflake punch. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my little snow angel.  =)
