Loads of Fun!

     I can't even begin to count the number of times I've played a card at Do You Stack Up, but I can tell you one of the reasons I keep playing there is that the DT is wonderful.  They leave the sweetest comments and I never have to wonder if anyone from their team has even visited my blog to look at my card.  So it's with honor this week that I am able to be a part of the DYSU design team as their guest.  :-)
     Their theme this week is "Let It Snow" and I was given this cute little "Snow Wagon" image from Robyn's Fetish, this week's sponsor.
     I started with a base of light kraft cardstock that I stamped and embossed some snowflakes on.  I also inked the edges with my Snow Cap dabber.  The big snowflake was cut from glittered paper.  My Cricut kept tearing it so I ended up cutting it out of regular cardstock, tracing it onto the glitter card, and cutting it out by hand.  I layered the image on top of it.  The little wagon full of snow was colored with Prismas and OMS and I added a little glitter too.
     Hope you can come join in the challenge this week!  A HUGE thank you to DYSU for the chance to be their guest.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
