Frosty In Wonderland by Starry Nights Studio

My card today was for a sample at the Stamps R Us challenge blog, the challenge started Monday, October 18th and will end October 31st.  It's a sketch challenge and I used Frosty In Wonderland by Starry Nights Studio, what a fun image to color!  
Here's the sketch for you to try, be sure to enter your card at the Stamps R Us blog when you're done! 

I used Copic markers to color Frosty along with Gina K Designs Hunter Green card stock, Neenah Red Linen card stock, Basic Black and Neenah Solar White and a heavy weight Vellum that I bought 100 sheets of by mistake a few years ago.  The Merry Christmas is a stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps and the snow flakes are a Martha Stewart punch and another old dull punch I have.  I ran the Vellum panel behind Frosty through the Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder and attached it to a white panel of card stock keeping the tape hidden and attached it to a Hunter Green panel.   One of the smaller snowflakes is punched from the Vellum but the larger punch kept breaking the snowflake so I used red under it to make it pop.  I added the red rhinestones to the snowflakes and my card was compete.  I really enjoyed this sketch and will probably use it again and again.  Thanks Alissa for a great versatile sketch!
