Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!!

Today is my last Tuesday as the November Guest Muse for Mercy and her Tuesday Sketch Challenges! I have had an absolute BLAST and cannot thank Miss Mercy enough for this honor!!

For today's sketch, MTSC102, I used this ADORABLE Pure Innocence Snow Angel from My Favorite Things. I just LOVE her (or I guess it could be a him!!).

I started by stamping the image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored it with Copic Markers. I paper pieced her coat and hat using the same pattern that I used on the card, Mitten Weather from Cosmo Cricket!

After coloring the image, I added some SU! Crystal Iris Chunky Glitter to both snowballs and the ground! I have had this glitter forever and I thought it would be sweet on this card!!

I embossed the Kraft panel with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder and sewed all the layers on my sewing machine. The Plum Pudding bow was created using The Bow Easy.

I chose to use the "Brrr" sentiment and I cut it out and embossed it with Circle Nestabilities and layered it on Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. A few of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles under the sentiment finish this off!!

Please head on over and check out what Mercy and her Muses have created with this rockin' sketch right here:
