Case of Laurel Seabrook and an attempt at a new technique

I don't know if you've heard, but Arizona had quite a storm over the weekend past and we got lots of snow - even on the lower elevation mountains that surround the "Valley of the Sun".  They were magically beautiful!  

Laurel Seabrook made several cards with a new CTMH hostess set that has this cute bear!  I tried to copy - but I was also thinking I wanted to do a technique where you use the Hot Shot to emboss a template.  I did it with a cloud template - but it didn't really show up over the beautiful Carolina blue cardstock (lighter side).  Then, I decided to add Frosted Lace Stickles to the depressions of the clouds (i.e. inside).  That almost worked.  Not knowing how to adhere everything and not have all that adhesive showing, I came up with the stitched rectangle frame (new from CTMH).  The stitched hills are from the decorative borders set of thin cuts.  Got SNOW? is what everyone in AZ was asking each other over the weekend!  LOL

Terrific card, Sharli! Such a fun little scene! I heard about the snow and even saw a Facebook video of a couple of cops "investigating" a white powdery substance. LOL I'm glad you guys were able to have fun with something that rarely, if ever happens at the lower elevations. :)
