JUGS215 - Warm Heart on a Cold Day

I am typically not a big fan of color challenges, BUT when I saw that thus week's Just Us Girls #215 challenge involved red, kraft, white, and brown I had to play along.  This is on e of my favorite color combos!  I just received a stash of new MFT goodies yesterday and I couldn't wait to start inking up my new stuff!   I decided to combine this challenge with the Sketch Saturday #285 challenge.

This card features the new released MFT Pure Innocence Warm Winter stamp set.

I started with a 5"x5" red hot CS base.  I stamped the argyle [attern from the MFT textile backgrounds stamp in sweet tooth ink.  Next I used a stippling brush and some sweet tooth ink on the kraft panel to create the snowfall.  I tore some white CS and added some glitter to the town edges to create the snow drift.   I added some white opal liquid pearls to create the snow under her boots and sprinked it with glitter.  I also used a glue pen and randomly added some dots to the showfall and sprinkled it with glitter.   I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

I used a white gel pen to add some freckles to her cheeks.  I also used some white opal Liquid pearls and glitter on the snowball in her hand.

Here's the Just Us Girls #215 challenge:
