Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Snow!

What a perfect challenge for Omaha today. We have 8 inches of fresh snow...Yippee Skippy!!!! Ann could not have know this when she chose this fun Sassy Cheryl's Challenge theme for us, but it worked out perfectly for me.
I used the super cute Sassy Cheryl in the Winter image for my Snow Day! card:

As is my usual method I colored the image and then searched for just the perfect dp..This dp was absolutely a perfect match.  This is a new DCWV Whimsey paper pack I picked up last week at Hobby Lobby.  The coloring was done with copic markers and this time I did not sponge around the edges...what's up with that? LOL.
The snowflakes are MS fnowflakes which were spritzed with glimmer mist so they really sparkle in real life but not so much in the photo.
The Snow Day !!! tag was cut with my cricut after I created the tag in Make the Cut software.  I really like this for sentiments and tags as I can choose my font and create my sentiment just like I would on the computer but it is more like a punched sentiment.  I layered the white behind the Soft Sky dp to accentuate the letters and mounted it with photo mounting foam to add dimension.  The snowflakes were also mounted on mounting tape.
A christmas ribbon with snowflakes and rhinestone centers was tied under the main image and my Snow Day Card is ready to enjoy.
Be sure to stop by the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the awesome creations by the Design Team and also the Sassy Cheryl's Store to see what wonderful new images she has created for us this week. 
Just a reminder there is a Benefit going on this month for Katie, a fellow crafter, who can use our love and support as she begins her treatment for stomach cancer.  See my last post for details and links where you can purchase the images, one of which is a Sassy Cheryl's image.  I think it is wonderful that the artists(owners) on all of the Design Teams I am on, have donated images for this worthy cause.  That's why I love ya ladies!!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

All we got in Myrtle Beach was a little dusting and a lot of ice!! I just can't believe how much snow has covered the states. Love your card Cathy! She must have definately gotten snow! ~jeni :)

Yep, perfect theme for the weather we've been having! Your card expresses how I feel when it snows! Beautifully done! Hugs, Barb

She's sure enjoying the winter weather! I immediately noticed the sentiment appeared cut out as opposed to stamped. So glad you explained it was Cricut so I don't have to ponder how you made it. It's distinctive.
