August Calendar Girls Challenge

(OOPS!  I mistakenly did next months challenge instead of July's.  Sorry! Check back August 28th for my card for the July challenge.).   But here is next months creation. :)

Our Calendar Girls hostess for August was Paola a/k/a Sweet P.  And her challenge to us was as follows:

"For the usually HOT and HUMID month of AUGUST, I would rather do something to get cooled off ...but what?
mmmm..I got it! We could make some SNOWballs....or even SNOWangels in the middle of summer, but how? ♥

Here's what I suggest :
Your challenge for this month is to create something with anything that begins with the word SNOW.
However, here's the catch: Your card should NOT reflect Christmas at all...but rather just images AND  sentiment( s ) that start with *SNOW*.

and to....

Once you blog your card, please also make sure to add what was your word choice that your card reflects, and also WHY you selected THAT particular word..."

So based on the challenge here is my card.  I just love this Whippersnappers stamp and knew I wanted to use it for the August challenge.  I colored the image with my Copic markers.  The felt snowflake is a retired embellishment from SU! and the pearl is from a packet I picked up at Joann's.  The DP is Snow Much Fun from Three Bugs in a Rug.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my sidebar and visit the other Calendar Girls to check out their creations.

Deb, this is such a COOL card - literally. Love the snowball! A GREAT Whipper Snapper stamp. And that felt snowflake is a fun embellishment! I'm so glad you did August - I needed a snowball in the middle of summer. ;)
