PBSC January - Anything Goes (Optional 'Something New')...More Inspiration!

It's the third Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for some more inspiration for this month's Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'
'Something New'
(New Year, New Baby, New Home, New Job, New Stash...)

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

My 'New' is some new paper that I received for Christmas. It's from a pad by Craft Sensations (found at The Range) called 'Mystery Marbles'...the papers are a mixture of marble patterns, and watercolour effects in gorgeous purples, pinks, blues & greens. I used a small piece of one of watercolour-y papers that had what looked like a falling snow effect on it as a background for one of the snowmen stamps from the 'Snow Much Fun!' set. I extended the snowy ground around him, coloured the image using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut it out. I added it to the snowy sky background, then carefully positioned his snowballs. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
