Cool Party

I got a card made for the CAS challenge at SCS, photographed and entered in the same week!  But I was so excited about the thought of stamping that I didn't start the dishwasher!  Oh well, this was a lot more fun and the dishes are clean now.

The challenge is a word inspiration "PARTY".  Can  you hear the music? These little guys look like they're dancing!  Either that, or their feet are cold!

I tore a piece of white scrap and adhered at the bottom.  I could say it's for the effect of drifts, but truth be told, it was to cover up a boo boo.  The Dazzling Details made the stamped "drifts" run.  That's the second time I've done that.  Maybe next time I will remember not to use the Dazzling Details on anything stamped in Basic Black!  I don't know about the other colors.  I wonder if it makes them run too?  Anyway, the Dazzle works fine on plain paper to make the snow sparkle.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!
Card Recipe
Stamps:  Polar Party
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Markers (Real Red, Garden Green, Pacific Point
Paper:  Whisper White, Real Red, Garden Green
Other:  Dazzling Details, Big Shot, Snow Burst EF

Hint:  Don't use the Dazzling Details on Basic Black.  It makes the black run.

Oh, and I'd like to share a bit of news.  I won blog candy from the Butternutsage blog.  Donna has reached 500,000 (that's a half million) hits on her blog and wanted to share her excitement.  I'm so excited!  Check out her blog for some great inspiration.

Thanks for the visit.
