Joan's Garden Challenge #38

I spent some time over the weekend playing in my craft room doing up some card kits that people have ordered and then decided to make a card for some challenges that are out there for this week . Really like doing the recipe challenges and over at Joan's Garden this week there is one that I thought I'd try.

1. Create a favorite winter pastime
2.Use black embossing
3.Use a frame
3.Create something that is dimensional.
Here's what I did for my card.
BG is embossed with Sizzix EF Starry Night .I cut my frame from a cricut cartridge Art Philisopy, stamped and embossed snowflakes around the edge. The image is a set from Inky Antics (Holiday Bazoop)which I stamp in black and colored with copic markers. I stamped a second hat and embossed with black EP added some red stickles for the bad and pop dotted it onto the image . I then added some fabric applique for fur around the lions hat and and suit . Added some glossy accents on the buttons and pipe. Snowflakes were made using TH mini snowflake die and spellbinders die .
