Frosty in pink and blue

     It's Bellarific Friday!!  WOOHOO!!!  Today I am sharing the adorable Frostier done in the colors of last weeks color inspiration challenge.

     I really struggled with this one.  I went back and forth trying several times to make a pink Christmas tree and the colors just were never right.  Then I thought about Mr. Snowman and I am lovin' the results.  The background was done with Distress inks and stenciled with embossing paste for the snow.  Frosty and his friend were fussy cut and grounded onto some die cut snow banks.

Copics Used:
hat E31, E33, E51
scarf BG53, R32
snowman C0, C2, BG000
nose YR61, YR65
holly YG11, R32
bird B00, BG53

     Next weeks challenge, which is the last for the year is very special. Stampingbella is honored to be featuring sketches from the amazingly talented Julee Tilman of Verve Stamps.  Our sketches will be called {Mojo}bella sketches.  YAY!!!
