Cupcake Craft #124 & Lawnscaping Challenge 1: winter birthday

Happy Snow Day! 
It's falling fast and furious out there today.  SO pretty.  I made this card for my niece's 17th birthday coming up at the end of the month.  I was going to use pinks and purples, but I think she'd like the blue more. 

I used Lawn Fawn's "Frosties" set for the sentiment and then on the background with clear embossing powder.  The little girl and snowman were stamped, colored and cut out.  I added Stickles to the little girl's hat and scarf and the tiny orange brads on her coat.  She is holding a piece of cotton ball.  The snowman has a flocked scarf and hat with a dab of liquid pearls on the tip of the hat.  He has black brads for the "coal" buttons. 

I am entering this in the Lawnscaping Challenge ONE "Snow" theme (2nd entry) and the Cupcake Craft  "Something New" challenge #124.  The TPC studio stamp set was a birthday gift from my brother and SIL and this is the first time I have use them! Such a cute set!

The inside features the Lawn Fawn set with a HA sentiment. 
A dab of blue Stickles was added to the corner stamped image:

Here's the new TPC Studio stamp set I received for my birthday:

Stamps: Lawn Fawn "Frosties", TPC Studio "Winter Activities", Hero Arts "Everyday Sayings"
Ink: Memento, Top Emboss
Paper: white glitter paper from Target, HL
Other: MS flocking powder, brads, liquid pearls, Stickles, Prismacolor pencils, cotton ball, pop dots, clear embossing powder, whew!

Thanks for coming by today!  Time to shovel the driveway and play in the snow!  -Kelly
