Outlawz Festive Friday on Black Friday

 Happy 'Black Friday', the biggest annual sale day on Earth! I've already bought a few pair of flannel lounge pants this morning...50% off. And I plan to check out some crafting items later on. I quit getting out to shop years ago, though, so all of my spending is the cyber kind. How about you? Do you still physically fight the crowds? I have a few friends who do, like a family tradition activity. 
Today is the beginning of a new 14-day challenge at Outlawz Festive Fridays, running until Dec. 9. Click on this LINK to for all the info to play. The graphic above shows the choices of themes for your cards.
Here is my design team make for the challenge. Our sponsor is Sheepski Designs and I am working with the image Snowmen Selfie. I used a white DCWV 6x6" card base and Fancy Pants Merry & Bright 6x6" paper collection. My image was printed on Springhill Digital card and the Sizzix Poinsettia dies were cut out from a thick winter white handmade paper from my stash. Green prills and green Stickles fill  the centers, and I outlined the leaves a bit with a Polychronos colored pencil.. I stamped and die cut a Lawn Fawn camera and stamped the Technique Junkies sentiment at left side and cut it with a Spellbinders labels die. The bottom Papertrey Ink sentiment was stamped and cut out with an MFT sentiment strip die. I colored the image with my Promarkers, adding Nuvo clear glaze to the snowmen's eyes, mouths and noses. I punched a handful of snowflakes out of Bazzill shimmering card and arranged them casually. I've also used a remnant strip of green embossed sheer ribbon in 2 rows underneath the poinsettias. 
For my layout design, I used Splitcoaststampers Sketch SC163, resizing to 6x6". 
Inside the card, I stamped a Stamplorations sentiment with Versafine ink. 
The back of the card has more Fancy Pants papers and a Technique Tuesday stamped siggie, colored a bit.
A close-up of the image to show the glossy shine made with the glaze and the glitter glue. 
And a final view. Thanks for visiting today and until next time, keep on crafting and please stay safe! xoxo

I hand-colored the digi focal image
My focal image is Whimsical and I have Xerox/Multiple snowmen and poinsettias
