Jenn's COOLest Card Series Week 1

Those Crazy Birds! I just can't stop using them on my cards. I wanted to use one of them on this card but he didn't have a hat. Had to dig into my stash to come up with this fun hat stamp for Jenn's COOLest Card Series.  I found it in an old Papertray build-a-snowman set.

Week 1 challenge was to use stencils. Thought of my "new to me" Memory Box snowflake stencil. Took me a while to figure out just what to do with it but I ended up using Wendy Vecchi's Metallic silver embossing paste to create shiny silver snowflakes. I always think of winter as black, white and gray so didn't feel the need to do anything else with the background. I die cut the Winter Wonderland from a Tim Holtz set out of black foam and added it to my card for a little more dimension. Used Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border with lots of MS snow glitter for the finishing touch. Enjoy!
