TLC247 Snoopy Dreams Come True

There's a great Technique Lover's Challenge going on over at Splitcoast this week.  The technique is to use a Coluzzel or Nestability to extend your image outside the line.  I decided that a sleeping Snoopy would fit this challenge.  I used a standard square Nestability to make my square.  After coloring with Prisma Pencils  and Gamsol and gel pens, I kind of lost my mojo and couldn't figure out where I wanted to go with this card. Smiley from

I pulled out my basket of Cuttlebug folders and came across the Journaling Card folder.  I ran some textured bright blue cardstock through, I found it was much easier to see how I wanted to format the card.  Here's a tip:  Primary colors go well with images such as Peanuts, Disney or Sesame Street. 

I distressed the blue CS with some sanding, added a strip of glittered CS at the top with my sentiment and ribbon, and then came the really fun part; I made some 5-layer buttons (sans the buttonholes) shaped like snowflakes.  If you haven't tried this technique, I highly recommend it.  It has to be my favorite of all the Technique Lover's Challenges that I've participated in.  Check it out on SCS.
