Merry Monday......Warm Wishes Snowman


Happy Friday Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week on the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge Blog. ( I am going to try and play along more with this challenge, I got several new Christmas goodies this past year and never got the time to use them.) 

The challenge this week is Snowman or Snow People:


This paper from Stampin Up is one I love and hardly got to play with this past Season, it is called
"Winter Frost"  The colors in this paper are so pretty. 
My snow man is not a SU stamp but I just love her.
I paper pieced her scarf and used my aqua painter to color her hat, face and the shadows.



The base of the card is some Brush Silver card stock followed by a layer of Coastal Cabana and then the DSP.
I added a strip of Silver Glimmer paper across the middle and edged them with more Coastal Cabana. This card really shines IRL!!
The sentiment below the snowgirl comes from "Snow Day" stamp set and I used my stamp a ma jig to line it up and used just a portion of  stamp.
I added two button snowflakes that I cut the shank off  of to the sides using some glue dots.

Hope you like her, I think she turned out pretty cute!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
