Another Christmas in July Card

 Back with another cool Snowman to cool down this summer hot day...I think he is so cooool!!! Love this Flourishes stamp and all the snowflakes stamp in the set "Warm Winter Wishes".  Made the background by stamping flakes in blue on white CS and used embossing folder on the lower part of blue CS. Highlighted the raised edges by rubbing with Brilliance Platinum Planet. Colored the image with pencils and copics, sponged the sky and added snowflakes. I made the bird a blue bird to go with the colors that I chose. Finished with a sentiment and ribbon to match. Other supplies included Memento Tuxedo Black and Summer Sky Inks, SU Rose Ink, Cuttlebug EF Snowflakes.
Challenges:
The Sweet Stop: Sketch 117 shown with a spin of Christmas in July.
Jellypark Challenge: New- First Challenge. Theme is Christmas in July.
Really Reasonable Ribbon: Theme is cool it! Snowman may not be what they had in mine at RRR, but what could be cooler?
Kaboodle Doodle Challenge:  Challenge is embossing. My DH just loves the name of this challenge so I have to enter here to make him smile.
Paper Cutz Challenge: Anything goes.

Keep cool if you are in the hot zones.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
