EARLY Holiday Wishes Challenge #88 at Send a Smile 4 Kids

There's Snowmen a plenty for this
'Early Holiday Wishes Challenge'
Since we don't make snowmen here in Australia at Christmas time
as it is our 'Summer' it was nice to play around
with all things 'SNOWY'
I made this card cas as the Snowman and his little birdie friend
were a perfect fit for the
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.
The digi image that I used here is from DRS Designs
I used  distress pens and a little coloured glitter
with sheer glitter for the snow.
Basic card stock in red green and white
Scattered rhinestones on the embossed paper.
Sentiment is also from DRS Designs
Spritzed the white card for a little shimmer.

Since I was playing with snowmen and this digi image and paper
from Stitchy Bear
was pre coloured I decided to make 2.
I again added some glitter for the snow and on
the snowflake. Also a little variegated twine on the side.
Sentiment is from Gina K Designs.
Again I went cas and used the coloured paper
that matched the snowmen's scarves.
Popped the snowmen after cutting out with
Spellbinders Circles/Lacey Circles.
Finished with sheer ribbon, bow and
SU punch in white.
Sentiment and snowflakes are also from the same set
from Gina K Designs - Snow One Like You.
The Winners of this Challenge will receive
