Color Challenge #33 ~ One for my hostess

I have a workshop tonight for my friend Judy. I when I saw these colors I thought that it would be a great time to make a snowman card for her with her favorite set! My base layer is textured whisper white, with certainly celery and taken with teal layered on that. I used the polkadot background with versamark on the taken with teal layer. Then I stamped my focal point.

Usually, when I stamp with this set, I make a huge border around it, but I decided to cut it pretty tight to the image this time. I think it kinda looks more like a snapshot of a family, know what I mean??

I used markers and a waterbrush to make the background on the whisper white, and colored many of the snowmen full strength so they would pop.

The chocolate double stitched ribbon, was simply tied in a knot and I used snail to stick it on! Super simple, way fun and cute! I would NEVER have put these colors together and felt challenged by them. Thanks to Kristina Werner for another AWESOME challenge!
