if you give a crafter a cookie/the stamping boutique

Happy Thursday!
Over at If You Give A Crafter A Cookie, a new challenge goes live today and it is just perfect for this time of year!
You have until February 11th to get your project uploaded!
Can't wait to see what you come up with!

 A great big thank you to our sponsor...The Stamping Boutique

We got some great digis to play with and they are donating a prize for this challenge!

Here's my card...

supplies: paper-solar white cs(neenah) and go! weekend (nicole); stamps-chilled cucumber xsoup(jillibean soup) and snowman snowglobe(the stamping boutique); ink-onyx black (versafine) and watercolor pencils (fantasia); accessories-white satin ribbon (amuse studio).

I wanted to make the card a little softer and warmer even though I colored his coat a little brighter.  The polka dot paper is really more gray, but in the picture takes on more of a purple cast.  Taking pictures of our creations is an art all in itself! ugh!!! Since I don't like the way the card above photographed, I decided to try it with a different pattern paper....from american crafts....
Here's the other version...
I like this one better!!!

I used the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches today to create my card.

And entering this in the wintertime theme challenge over at Double D Challenge Blog

And Creative Moments...always anything goes with an optional twist of winter
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great one!
