TRuly Scrumptious Challenge #19-Sketch & Recipe

Hello and welcome back to another Truly Scrumptious challenge! I missed last week and didn't want to miss another week so I got this card done several days ago. Felt good to get it done early.
The TS Challenge #19 is a sketch and recipe. Here is the fabby sketch:

Of course I tweaked it into a 6x6. :o)
The recipe is as follows:
3 flowers/3 rhinestones/3 brads
Easy Peasy!
I must tell you that I LOVE this card. I just love how it turned out...but it really didn't photograph very well...the picture really doesn't do it justice. Oh well. :o}

I used my absolutely favorite Holiday paper this year-Basic Grey:Eskimo Kisses. Even the name is down right adorable!
The image is Edwin and Tilda skating...I just love this image to pieces
I colored in the image with my copics
The sentiment stamp is Close To My Heart, I also added some stickles to the sentiment to make it pop a bit.
I used my rectangle nesties and my snowflake shapeabilites both by spellbinders. I airbrushed the snowflakes
I also added some Prima Bling flourishes
Now to explain how I used the recipe:
I used SU! Sparkle Brads-Rhinestones and Brads in one! :o)
I also decided to use snowflakes instead of flowers....cause snowflakes are like winter flowers right? hehe

Make sure you check out the TS challenge blog to see what the other designer's came up with; and have a fabby Wednesday!

Stunning card Nicole - love how you've used the Eskimo kisses paper. The colours are fabulous and it all sits together so beautifully with your gorgeous details.
Can't find an airbrush system here - found one in the UK but they won't export probably due to the compressed air canister!!!
