Snow Day {MFTWSC3}

It's time for this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club, MFTWSC3. The weekly sketch is posted each Wednesday at midnight on the MFT Blog and in the MFT Forum on Splitcoast, as well as in the weekly newsletter.
There's a prize each week for one participant, chosen at random. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week a keyword is assigned to the sketch, and this week's keyword is MFTWSC3. All you need to do to enter is upload your card to the gallery at Splitcoast and enter the given keyword in the keyword box during the upload process. After the deadline (noon Eastern on Tuesday) we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher!
Today's card is my Project Christmas 2011, card #3. No, I'm not crazy...I just keep myself from going crazy in December by making Christmas cards all year long. You should give it a try!
I used the sweet Snow Day Pure Innocence image...love her! She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and done up with a combination of paper piecing and copic colouring. I {heart} these non-traditional purple patterned papers from the Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather pack. It probably doesn't show in the picture but the snowballs are covered with sparkle thanks to my clear Spica glitter pen and I added chunky diamond dust to the snow on the ground. White liquid applique is the finishing touch on her boots and hat. 
I gave the card more dimension by cutting out the girl and the snowballs before colouring them, then I popped them on foam tape. I added a single pink snowflake which I cut with my snowflake die-namics and I also used my little open scallop die-namic on the base layer. 
Be sure to head over to Kim's Blog to view the entire list of design team participants...there's plenty of inspiration for you!
Thanks for stopping by!
