Dynamic Duos #29

It's time for another Dynamic Duos challenge!  Get ready for a frosty one - this week's colours are Marina Mist & Basic Black... with a "Dessert Option" of a snowman theme.  If you don't have the exact colours, just use something similar (I've used Close To My Heart's Crystal Blue & Black), and you can include neutral tones like grey, brown, flesh tones, kraft etc. - but otherwise just stick to our two colours.
     I love this little snowman stamp set - even though it's been retired for a couple of years, I knew that it would make a great snowglobe card, so that's what I came up with for this week's challenge.  He's little, just 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" as that's the scale that fit the image, but it'll work great as a little gift enclosure card, or I may even use it as a tag?  He was a bit awkward to photograph, as he doesn't stand up on his own, you just lift up the globe to see the message underneath.  I added lots of chunky glitter to make him all sparkly, and shaded the edges with Copic markers.
The inside:
Cardstock is Crystal Blue, Black & White; Stamp set is Snow Friends; both CTMH; Martha Stewart coarse glitter; Copic Markers; Ink is Tuxedo Black, Memento.

Be sure to visit the Dynamic Duos blog to see what all designers have come up with this week (lots of snow and bling!), and we hope you'll join us and play along.
