Flurry of Love

I can only wish it was a snowy day.  Sunday it topped out here at 112 degrees heat index. Normally I hate cold weather but I can't help but think of it rather fondly at times like these. 

I used this week's Sketch for You to Try as the basis for this Christmas in July card.  I stamped the My Favorite Things Pure innocence Flurry of Love image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Bazzill Simply Smooth cardstock.  I cut it and the mat out with my old trusty Creative Memories oval cutting system and colored with Copic Markers. To get the mottled effect on her coat, I first colored it as per usual.  I then removed color by moving my blender marker around in small circles.  I added some stickles to the falling snow and then added some snow via Flower Soft at her feet.
