Winter Shimmer

Hi all! This little winter house is from Anna Wight's Penguin Antics set, just released by Whipper Snapper Designs this month.

I stamped the house in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copic markers. I added some Frosted Lace Stickles to the snow on the roof and on the ground. The main image and scallop mat behind it were cut with Nestabilities, and they're each up on separate layers of dimensionals.

I followed Beate's Weekend Sketch #63. Thanks, Beate!...another fun one! The blue felt snowflakes and the white pearls are available at Stamper's Dream. The Night Sky Shimmer CS and the Silver Ribbon are from Papertrey. The white panel was run through the Cuttlebug with the old snowflakes embossing folder.

On the inside of the card, there's a white panel with two snowflakes from the Penguin Antics set stamped in the lower left-hand corner in Brilliant Blue ink....I know, I really need to buy some navy ink. I can't believe I don't own any!
