Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--White Christmas

Yippee, it's Tuesday and that means time for another Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and the theme this week is one of my favorite because it is always to beautifully striking, White on White:  I chose the image, Merry Christmas Snowman Bulb, because I saw so many beautiful cards made with it last year and never got around to using it and was not going to make that mistake this year:

I used copics to color the image and airbrushed the highlights.  The white card stock was run through my cuttlebug wtih the Snowman sayings embossing folder and my large polka dot folder compliments of my dear DT gf Judy. 

I tied the dotted cs with red and white bakers twine and added the same bakers twine to the snow flake embossed tag I created with a small embossing folder also run through the cuttlebug.  A holly leaf and a button in the lower left corner and two tiny red buttons in the upper left and this beauty is ready to send to any Sassy friend you have on your Christmas list.

Be sure to drop by the Challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT gals have created for your inspiration and grab an image or two and play along in the Challenge. This image above is in the 1.00 dollar bargain bin and if you win the random drawing you win two free Sassy Cheryl's images. 

Thanks for taking the time to play along during this busy Holiday Season and have a wonderful creative day.

And your card is equally BEAUTIFUL, Cathy. Love the white on white with only the color in the image and of course little 'twine/ribbon' is the perfect touch.

Great embossed layers Cathy. I haven't seen the snowman folder before, love it! Clever girl, pulling the holly out of the image as an accent for a nice pop of color.
