Stamp with fun #140–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you had a great weekend, even though the weather wasn’t that brilliant in some parts of the country.  Scotland even had some snow I think – keep it to yourselves please – I’m happy not to have any this year lol! 

I’m here this morning with my DT card for this week’s stamp with fun challenge and this week we have a brilliant sketch by Tina46 to use.  As always you can flip it etc as long as we can recognise the original sketch.  Here is my card:

SWF #140 - sketch

and here is the fantastic sketch:

SWF #140 sketch

I have used a brand new image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘snow person with mittens’ (which is one of 5 – yes 5 – offers of the month this month) and I coloured him with promarkers and flex markers.  When I was looking for papers to use I came across this super cute mittens paper from the ‘winter park’ paper pad by echo park and had to use it, along with a few other matching papers from the same pad.  The plain red card is SU and the alphabet beads are from my stash. 

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
