The theme of this challenge was ** 5 **! Why the number 5 you may ask? It is because Clear Dollar Stamps is 5 years old. Happy Anniversary LORI!!!!!

Check out Lori's wonderful store HERE!

So back to the challenge...we were to use the number 5 as our inspiration. We could interpret it how we liked. I chose to use this sweet Little Snowman stamp from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS, and he is juggling 5 snowflakes. There is also 5 dewdrops across the top of my card and bow.

I used vellum card stock and my Martha Stewart loop punches to create a snowflake. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to all the loops.

My little snowman and snowflakes were embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder and Ballet Blue Craft ink.

I added 5 sparkly brads to the center of each snowflake. There is also glitter on my snowman and I used Liquide Applique for the snow.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps~Little Snowman
Paper: Vellum card stock, Ballet Blue, Shimmery White
Ink: Craft Ballet Blue, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango, Barely Banana
Accessories: Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Martha Stewart Loops Punches, Corner Punch, Sparkly Brads, Dew Drops, Snowflake Ribbon, Bow Easy, Liquide Applique, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Dimensionals, Sponge Dauber
