Dueling Darlings December Duel!

Yes, it's the 15th and time for another duel.  Michelle spoiled us Dazzlers with the greatest kit!  It featured "Snow is Overrated" by Whippersnappers as the image and some really wonderful papers and glittery ribbon and snowflake embellishments.

Here is what I came up with:

Isn't he just the cutest little guy? I just love how he seems to be smiling despite his little spill on skis.    He's colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a wee bit of sparkle was added to the snow and the bell on his hat.
This view shows more of his sparkle:

Michelle, you were so generous with this kit, how could anyone NOT create a wonderful card?!  Thank you!

Now, all of you reading this - get on over to the blogs of the other Divas & Dazzlers and admire their creations!  It will put you in the Christmas spirit for sure!


Thanks for stopping by and for leaving your comments.  
Wishing each of you a blessed holiday season!

Oh, this little snowman skier is just adorable! Darlene, love how beautifully you've colored him...He just pops off this card! Love the perfectly patterned papers (hmm, being a little alliterative here. teehee!) and how triangled panels. And love how you topped it all off with all the sparkle in ribbon, snowflake brads and glitter!!! Awesome card!
