And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Warm Greetings

Hello friends and warm greeting to you!  I love trying new techniques and cute snowman images...when you combine the two you get a card perfect for sending warm greetings!

Creative Nugget:  The background was made using the Shaving Cream Sparkle Technique with shaving cream and distress inks. Several shades of blue distress inks were combined with shaving cream on an acrylic block and smeared across the mixed media paper at the top and bottom of the panel.  Instead of a splatter stamp, a dot stencil was used to apply ink and embossing powders.  The cute snowman is from the White as Snow Stamp & Die Duo just released by Our Daily Bread Designs at the beginning of the month.  Other dies used to complete the card include Pierced Rectangles, Oval Stitched Rows, and Curvy Slopes.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #271 - Anything Goes
CAS-UAL Fridays Challenge 188 - Winter Blues
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 507 - Anything Goes
Simon Monday Challenge Blog - Icy Inspiration
Sparkles Christmas Challenge #83 - Snowman/Men

Thanks so much for stopping by...stay warm and cozy!

Hugs,
Cathymac

Great background. I always wonder how messy that technique is when I see it online. I might need to try it. Love the cute snowman. Thanks for playing along at Casual Fridays Winter Blues Challenge.
