Paper Smooches SPARKS--You're Brrr-fect

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. ***

 This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is an anything goes challenge.  I took my inspiration from the wintery weather we're (still!) having to create this card using the Chilly Chums set.

You're Brrr-fect card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I did a little masking to dress the little chum in a winter weather scarf, then colored the image with Copic markers.  I used foam tape to adhere him to a pale blue cardstock panel with a shimmery white snowbank across the bottom half.  The snowbank's curve was made with PS's Backdrop Builders dies.  To fill in the wintery scene, I stamped some snowflakes on the panel in silver ink.  The Chilly Chums set has a snowflake image, but I wanted to have varying sized flakes on my cards, so I went with the ones from the Cool Dudes set  instead.  The "you're brrr-fect" sentiment was stamped among the flakes in blue ink. 

Don’t miss what the rest of the SPARKS team has created this week. Here’s where to find them:
