PeachyKeen Challenge 56

Hello! It's challenge time again and this time we have the above sketch to follow. No twist this time. ;) I decided I wanted to do a sort of Christmas in July card...but it turned out more Winter in July...guess that is fitting because it is HOT HOT HOT out!!!
I stamped the snowflakes from the Snow Flakey set with embossing ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then went over my cardstock with distress ink in Broken China...and while it was still wet I spritzed with water from a mini mister to make it look more "snowy". And then I spritzed the whole thing with some perfect pearls and water in a mini mister to add sparkle.
The sentiment is from the Chill Baby Chill Snowman Set. I white heat embossed the sentiment too. Then I just did some white stitching with my sakura gelly roll pen and called this card done. ;) So pop over to the CHALLENGE BLOG and see what everyone else made..and to play along!!!
