Let it Snow, let it snow, let it snow!

I simply love this stamp it's called 'Let it Snow' and is made by Impression Obsession and I can see me making a few of these cards this year.
The base card is a DL size card then I used a slightly smaller white piece of card and used the Swiss Dots and the Snowflake A2 cuttlebug folders to emboss it, once I'd done this I tied a blue satin ribbon around it then stuck it down onto the base card with double sided tape.
I stamped the image onto white card with the SU Brocade Blue ink then used a damp paint brush over the inked image to create shadows.
I cut out the image using the QuicKutz cookie cutters and also cut out a larger shape in the blue card then stuck these to the card. The sentiment was stamped in the same ink and I used SU oval punches to cut the sentiment and a blue scalloped oval out then added to the card.
I finished by using stickles and silver Bedazzles on the image.

YOU are so talented and I get my ideas from yours - I have become very dependent on your everyday emails and showing of new cards. And thanks for letting us know where you got all your supplies. That helps. I do hope you pick my name for the stamp set - I have not found a good cupcake as of yet!
