Christmas in August...ha!  I had fun making those other two Christmas cards for the DTGD challenges, so I decided to go with one more only with non-traditional colors.  This is for Lydia's (Understandblue) challenge.  Prescott is from Whipper Snapper Designs and I don't think it's possible to get any cuter than this!  This card also fits with Designed to Color's Color Inspiration challenge.

The imaged was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto a scrap of Neenah card stock.  It was colored with Copic markers, fussy cut then set aside.  The embossed "snow" on the Nestie layer was done by hand...I didn't want the outside ring to have the embossing, so I used a stylus and the embossing folder to get the texture.  The snowman and bird were popped up on foam and a glittery snowflake, button and bow combo completes the card.

SNOWMAN:  BV20, BG70, 0  CARROT NOSE, BIRD'S BEAK:  YR16, YR15, YR12, YR00  SWEATER, MITTEN, SCARF, HAT BAND:  YG67, YG63, YG61, Y17, Y15, Y11, Y00  TOP HAT:  C6, C4, C2, C0  SKATES:  C6, C4, C2, C0, C3, C1, C00  BIRD:  Y17, Y15, Y11, Y00  BIRD'S HAT, SCARF:  YG67, YG62, YG61  SNOW:  BV20, BG70, 0

So precious!  These little guys were so much fun to color!  I have one more project to post for the DTGD challenges...stay tuned!
