My sense of humor

Well I am sure I will have some explaining to do (I Love Lucy Show) with this card.  I merged two digi images to get the effect I wanted.  The little girl is First Fallen Snow without snowflakes from Karen's Doodles and the lamp post is from a free digi image with a Dragon Caroler created by Dustin Pike.  A few adjustments in photoshop and wha-la this little girl has her tongue stuck to the lamp post.    I used crystal effects to make the lamp post shiny and figured that freezing her tongue to the pole would serve for the ABC Christmas Challenge - frosty.  I also dipped all of the snowflakes layered into a versamark pad and then sprinkled them with Iridescent Ice EP and heated it up for the frosted look. If that isn't enough frost I used Frosted Lace and Waterfall Stickles for the accents along the outside of the card.  I used liquid applique for the snow, then heated it up with a heat tool for the raised effect.  The fat white ribbon is recycled from a gift I received, the glitter is already explained with the frost and the image from Karen's Doodles was purchased this week so I consider that new stash.  All combined it works for the Bah Humbug Challenge 9 - Cool Combos.  I used the sketch from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 44 and the colors from Color Dare 59.  I hope you all can enjoy my warped sense of humor, as I don't relish this act on anyone, but we all know someone silly enough to try it.
