Sketch it

Hi, everyone!  This week's challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long (CSAYL) is to use a sketch, any sketch for your card/project.  Our sponsor this week is Limited Runs Digital and do they ever have some cute images!!

This little cheery snowman is the one I chose to work with and my sketch is the Viva La Verve July week 1 sketch.  I'm a little behind this month as it is already the 3rd week of July and I am doing the sketch for the 1st week.  But that's ok, 'cause this sketch is really fun.  Make sure you hop on over to the CSAYL blog and check out the other designer's cards, then go make one of your own.  We'd love it if you played along.
Here's a close up of my flourish (I used an Inkadinkado flourish stamp with versamark to lay it out on the card and then used cinnamon stickles to create the actual flourish.)--it pretty sparkly in real life--and the cute little snowman.  I outlined him with a glitter pen to give him an icy look.
