Snowflake Love......

We are in the middle of some heavy duty snowfall today, so I think it's another great day to stay in and do some crafting. Here's a cute snowman card  using a sweet image from Country Life Graphics. He's from their Greetings Collection.
He was decked out for Christmas. But with a little maneuvering in my software program, I removed the holly on his hat, and  hand drew some little hearts around his head. Now he looks more like a Valentine's card.
I colored the image with Copic markers, and did the highlight's with a white gel pen. I always add little dots to represent where shadows might be. The dots are something I started doing as a painter and it carried over to my card making.
The pretty background paper is digital. It is from Scrappin' Doodles Whimsical Valentine Backgrounds collection. I just print out what I need to match my project.
The little sentiment under the bow is also from a Country Life Graphic set. I matted everything on to black card stock and finished it with a big glittered snowflake using a cutting die and my Cuttlebug.
Thanks for stopping by and if you are in a snowy state like Michigan, where I am today, I hope you stay warm and safe. Have a great afternoon!
