For the general layout of my card, I used the MojoMonday sketch challenge this week. The image and sentiment from my old stand-by, Flaky Friends, were stamped on Kraft cardstock with Stazon Jet Black; the white sections were colored with a Signo Gel Pen; the colored sections were painted with Smooch pearlized paints. The entire thing was then sprayed (many times) with Pearl Glimmer Mist.....I love this stuff!!!

You have until Saturday night at midnight EST to leave your comments here to win my card and blog candy. Good luck and thanks so much for joining us on our "March of the Snowmen" Blog Hop!!! God Bless!
