From The Heart Progressive August Challenge

My FIRST Christmas card for this year and it's for From The Heart Progressive Monthly Challenge.  The image this month is called Candy Cane for Snowman and you get the image along with four sentiments.  If you did not participate in last months challenge, you can purchase this image for $3.50 OR received it FREE with a $10 purchase and the code LETITSNOW.  The layout is for From The Heart Sketch Challenge #116.  I colored her with copics, used  star dust stickles for the snow, flower soft/flocking powder for the fur, and clear wink of Stella on the candy cane.  DP is DCWV the Christmas Stack, purple from Recollections Jolly Holiday, and pink cs from Craft Smith purples pad.  Cuddlebug snowfake embossing folder, Doodlebug pink and purple twine, snowflake brad from my stash, Martha Stewart punch, SB large circles and large scalloped circles dies.
