Softpencil on Wednesday!

I'm so glad that I was able to accomplish something this week. It feels good to craft again even if it's just a simple card. This week Softpencil has asked us to do our post today (Wednesday) instead of our normal Thursday. So here it is! I also participated in this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketches. I challenge you all to go over there and try this weeks sketch challenge...it's not an easy one but it was a fun one!
This week for Softpencil we were to use We made A Snowman image and it needed some kind of sparkle or glitz for the New Year. Well...as you all know...that wasn't too hard for me, I don't think there is much of anything that I don't include sparkle in!
I used My Mind's Eye DP (I got this huge stack of it in the mail yesterday and it came from an online store called scrapbooksteals.com....needless to say I was super excited about all this paper but I have never ordered from there before so right now I'm still clueless as to where it came from or whom it came from), I used SU! sentiment and punches, American Craft ribbon, some buttons, and of course stickles and some liquid pearls...still not sure if I like the look of the liquid pearls. My creation with them didn't come out as good as one of my CCBG gals' card did!, and of course colored with copics!
