Hey There, Grumpy

Good evening! I am so excited to share this little card with you! I don't know why, but it's one of those things that you get so excited about because everything came together just like it should. This was one of those cards. This will be for my dad's birthday at the end of the month. I know it's not the typical birthday card (and he's not a grumpy guy generally), but this is what he looks like in winter;) He's a summer person like me, so I thought he would appreciate this.

I am entering this card in a few challenges:
Papertake Weekly - guy card
Sketch Saturday - the sketch
Crazy 4 Challenges - make a square card (this is a square easel card)
Paper Sundaes - Let it Snow
Corrosive Challenges - Black and Blue color combo


Supplies are SU cardstock in Bliss Blue and Basic Black. DP is DCWV Winter stack. Pearls are Kaiser from Paper Jewels. Silver cord is SU, I also used clear Stickles as accents. Image is from Whimsy Stamps colored with Copic markers. Snowflakes are punched in vellum from a MS punch and sponged with silver pigment ink. Ovals are from Fiskars punches.
Thanks for stopping by!
