You're The Coolest

Today I'm playing along with two challenges: (1) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where this time around Simon Says: Cute Critters and (2) NBUS (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) Challenge #58.

 I've had this Bunny Slopes stamp set and coordinating dies (Neat & Tangled) in my stash for ages but this is my first time inking it up (gasp!!!). And I'm so glad I finally did because it's so stinkin' cute!!! I needed a birthday card for one of my neighbor girlfriends who loves to ski. Her birthday is in January so I was thinking I wanted to go with a winter/skiing theme for her card. Then I remembered her husband sharing this photo at some point on social media:


...and it was too perfect to pass up!

I pulled my color combo from the In The Alps 6x6 patterned paper from Catherine Pooler (rouge, polished, hot tub, skylight, stone blue, and juniper mist). I also had fun adding some white gel pen details to the images. The wintery weather has made the lighting a little tricky for photographing these days but I did my best :)

Thanks for visiting!

Have a fantastic day!!!
