Club Anime Sketch Challenge #4 and Guest DT Call

It is time for another monthly sketch challenge over at Club Anime, and make sure you read this post to the end as there is an announcement.  This was a fun sketch to work with: 

And here is my interpretation of it:

I chose this image because it reminds me of my kids in the winter.  We have a huge hill in the front of our house which turns into the kids sled hill in the winter, so I just had to put the "Let it Snow" saying on there  ~ and living in Wisconsin we will more get more than enough, although we haven't had any yet.....

Last year on December 3rd, I was a chaperone on a field trip with Alicia's class to a one room schoolhouse and it was snowing so bad they couldn't even walk to one of the buildings they were supposed to go see because of all the snow.  Tyler went on the same field trip yesterday, and he was lucky ~ no snow at all.

OK, back to my card....I colored the image with my copics and decided to make patterns on both of their sweaters with the blender pen {LOVE that marker!}.  The image was cut out and placed on the embossed and stickled (is that even a word LOL!) circle.  More stickles were then added for snow.  The little snowflakes are actually the punchouts from the snowflake border punch ~ I just added little gems to the centers and they made the perfect embellishment.  The scalloped edge is the opening of the card, something I don't do too often, but I should because than it makes me finish the inside up right away!
