Snail & Fluffles - Sketch #37

Good day all. Hope you all are staying warm. It's blowing flurries outside right now. and the highs for the next two days are expected to be low-30s. Brr! Then by Friday the temperatures are supposed to get up to the high 50s. Crazy.
I have a card to share with you all. I used Friday Sketcher's Sketch #37 for my inspiration. It's always helpful for me to have a sketch to work with.

I already had my image, colors, and DP picked out, but just wasn't sure how to put it all together. I thought Sketch #37 really worked well. I had saw a tutorial on heat embossing a few months ago and was intrigued. I know - I'm behind. I had a 50% off coupon for Michael's burning a whole in my wallet so I used it on a heat gun. I love this technique. The stamp I used is called Snail Fluffles. I stamped the image with Brilliance ink and used my Prismacolor pencils, blending stumps, and odorless mineral spirits to color it. The blue cardstock is from DCWV. The DP is from Making Memories's Chloe's Closet collection. I love this stack. The ribbon is from American Crafts. I used Stickles for the center of the flowers and the snail's shell.

Well that's all for me today. I got Brideshead Revisited in the mail today from Netflix so I think I'll pop that in this evening. Ciao!
