OCC Sketch Challenge

Well, I'm back for a second challenge today. You can view all the details at Our Creative Corner.
I absolutely LOVE this card. I just recently visited a store in my area for the first time. It had all kinds of country decor. I guess it kind of got the wheels turning in my head. My usual "style" is either elegant or cute. But I guess I'm a little bit country....little bit rock n roll too! I was going through my drawer of things when I came upon some old stickers I had leftover from a Christmas scrapbook page. Lightbulb! Just in case you couldn't tell the snowman is the sticker and he is from a sheet made by ME and MY BIG IDEAS. The cut out heart and border are from a company called Embossable Designs. I got this on QVC a LONG time ago so I don't even know if they still exist. I did do some stamping though. I have an angel and tree leftover from those stickers. I think I may triplicate this card:) Here it is:

Now for the deets: This card measures 5 1/2" square. I used a sheet of paper that is similar to SU's Kraft but a bit darker. I'm sorry. I have no idea when I even got it. This is the MO of a scrapper/stamper.....you BUY it THEN figure out what to do with it LATER...sometimes much later. I stamped this with the retired (boohoo) Weathered Background stamp and Choc chip ink. The bottom layer is More Mustard that I distressed on the top edge with my Cutter Kit. I layered that embossed border over the top portion. The Sticker is applied to Whisper white cardstock that is layered with Baroque Burgundy cardstock. I distressed the edges of both these as well. The SU black buttons at the top have hemp strung through them and are adhered with mini glue dots. I stamped the sentiment from Season of Joy onto the same cardstock as the base with Real Red Craft ink and cut out with the medium sized oval punch. I then added liquid applique for the snow. I sponged around the entire perimeter of the card with choc chip ink. The die cut heart and sentiment are popped up with dimensionals
Thanks for checking in twice today! Hope you have a great one!
