Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge - SASSC37

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Before I show you my card today, I would like to wish my oldest son a very Happy Birthday ~ Happy Birthday Nick, I LOVE you!!

Today’s card is for this week’s sketch challenge "SASSC37" over at Stamps and Smiles. I created this sketch so the top layer can hold a gift card or you can create a fun tag out of it too. We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.
For my sample I used a NEW stamp set by Stamps and Smiles called Tis the Season to be Jolly. This fun holiday paper is from My Mind's Eye collection 2009. I added stitching to the card and then embossed the top layer using the winter house embossing folder. After the card was all put together, I added some glue and a little fun sparkle.

Here is a close up of the sparkle and added snowflakes. I stamped Jolly in Memento ink and colored him in using my Copics. I then sponged on some creamy caramel to match the vintage paper. To finish Jolly, I added a little pom pom on his hat.
Please stop by the Stamps and Smiles blog to see more samples from the Design Team. There is no time limit on our challenge, so please play along whenever you are able! However to be eligible for the Stamps and Smiles goodie bag, please have your card uploaded by Wednesday, 6 pm CST.
Don't forget to stop by my Christmas blog, most of the cards I will be making in the next few weeks will be given away at my Christmas Card Giveaway. Grab some hot chocolate and check it out.

See you Saturday with another fun sample and a special announcement & giveaway! Have a fun
day. ~ Hugs & Smiles

Hi Jennifer, LOVE your card!! Love all the sparkle - looks all cool and frosty. Really love how you used the Winter House embossing behind the snowman - very clever idea and is just perfect with the snowman. Great stitching too!
