Ready for Snow

The sun is out and the temperature is starting to drop. I am ready for some snow...what about you? Anything but more rain is fine with me...
I wanted to show you a nice close up and highlight the flexibility of rub-ons. This sentiment from Melissa Frances didn't appear in the package this way but by rubbing on one word at a time you can manipulate your sentiment to flow with your image. I wanted to go gently around my heart die cut and have my "falling" actually falling...
This card is button galore and I really loved the cute TINY buttons on the scarves of these polar bears.
These bears are so sweet! They are called "Polar Love" (Stephanie Fizer) for My Favorite Things. Colored up with my copics. White bears are perfect for practicing that "fade away to white" technique with the blender pen. You can see a video of that technique HERE.

Here is the whole card in it's button glory. There is actually a button challenge going on in the CARDS blog...my inspiration for today! I used Melissa Frances paper for the background and that lovely sparkly snowflake is from MF as well! Can you see where I used my multiliner?
I made the mound of snow and added the scarf tassles. I even had cut a bit of my image (by mistake) with my heart die...but was able to draw the missing piece back in with my multiliner.

I'm off to work on my Christmas gift projects...time is ticking! It's December 1st! Ack!
