Simple Magical Ball

2 Days until Christmas!  Are you ready?  I have a few presents to wrap and some food to buy still.  I figure once 12 noon on Christmas Eve hits, if you haven't gotten it/remembered you need it, you aren't getting it so no need to worry.  Simplify...that's what I'm going for.   And, that's exactly what I aimed for with this card.  I just love the Magical Ball stamp set and so I've been playing with it a lot.

I stamped the image on white cardstock, and then again on green cardstock and cut out the green base and attached it to the white stamped image.  Then, I stamped my snowman, masked him off and stamped the globe again.  I used my Nestabilities to cut out the circle and then pop-dotted it onto the first image that I stamped.  I traced in the insides of my snowman with a blue copic (B000) and then traced him with Crystal Stickles.  I went back after and stickled the snow, both on the ground and in the air.  Then, I used my Cuttlebug to add some texture to my card front and added the flower for some extra color, once I'd attached all the paper elements. 

Here's wishing you all a very safe, happy, healthy and Merry Christmas.  And, may 2010 be your very best year yet!
