Snowy Greetings

Hi everyone.  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday.  We had lots of time with family and friends and look forward to the new year celebrations in just a few more days! 

It was fun to be back in my art studio again.  Today I have Trevor, sitting outside in the snowy weather, sipping a cup of hot cocoa - yum!  I'm entering this card into the All That Scraps challenge - Anything goes.  Hope you like.

Stamps:  Cocoa Trevor and Spring Bench (C.C. Designs); Frosty Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  C.C. Designs
Ink:  Early Espresso (sentiment); Copics:  E44, E49, E77, E00, E01, R20, B39, B97, BG57, BG52, YR24, R29, R39, 0 (colorless blender)
Accessories & Tools:  Stamp-a-ma-jig, Cappucino Twine (The Twinery); silver snowflake ($1 store),  Embossing paste (Dreamweaver - used on pompoms), glue dot, adhesives, and dimensionals

I used the heaviest C.C. Designs white cardstock for my card front.  I love this stuff!!  Not only does it give me a wonderfully sturdy card front, but it rips so nicely to create fantastic snow drifts!

I used copics to color in Trevor and the bench.  Then cut them out and popped them on top of the snow.   A sweet sentiment from Amy R, some twine and a silver snowflake complete the card.

Here's a close-up of Trevor:
