Rejoice-Two Challenges done

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! I got a card done this morning while my husband was watching football. The sketch challenge is from Paper Craft Planet and the snowflake challenge is from SCS. And again I have used my new decorative paper.
1. I stamped the snowflake on a cream card with latte ink stamping twice before re-inking.
2. The snowflake is stamped with blue and embossed then painted with white Twinkling H2O's.
3. Cut out the snowflake using a circle Coluzzle, sponge the edges and layer.
4. Punch snowflakes from blue and brown papers. Apply Circle sticker that has been colored brown with a sharpie.
5. Stamp rejoice with blue ink and layer. Add snowflake stickers that have been colored brown.

For the bling I used circle and snowflake silver stickers that I colored with a brown sharpie. I love this technique, so now matter what color I need as long as I have a sharpie the right color, I will have it :)

The sharpie dries in seconds.
Recipe
Stamps- word by Flourishes, snowflake by Stampendous
Inks- blue VersaFine, latte Adirondack
Plus- silver snowflake and circle stickers by Stampendous, brown sharpie, brown satin ribbon, clear glitter embossing powder, siam white Twinkling H2O's, foam squares, circle Coluzzle, snowflake punch

Thanks to the tip about coloring the blings with the sharpies. That is so easy, why didn't I think of it. I love the browns that you have used in these cards. They are so easy to admire, and are not busy. Thanks for inspiring me on this.
