Happy Birthday!! :) and My Very first Whiff Of Joy Post!.

Today is my husbands birthday :)  So, for his birthday I made him this card. This is also my first Whiff Of Joy post! I loved working with this image.. and since Kevin's birthday is in January I found it very fitting to make it into a birthday card. Couldn't come on a colder day either!! Brrrr...

This was so fun! For this one I used Whiff of Joy - Freezing Friends. I colored this image with my Prismacolor pencils. I colored the image twice so that I could decoupage pieces of the image. I used my snowflake embossing folder for the white background. All of the papers are from Echo Park Paper Company and it from the Winter Park set of papers by Lori Whitlock. I distressed the edges of the papers on the inside. I added a little bit of stickles on the snow on the ground and the snowman. I used my snow marker.. I love that thing! for the hats. I popped parts of the scarfs, the snowmans buttons and nose and Henry's arm and gift. I also added those little wooden snow flakes. Hope you like it!!!  And I hope Kevin does as well!! ;)
