Warm Wishes for Christmas Card Challenges #34

Good morning friends.  It is time for a new challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges and this week it is "Anything Goes" as long as it is a Christmas project.

For my card I used this cute snowman from Avery Elle's Be Jolly.  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and did a little coloring with Promarkers.  I paper-pieced his scarf and added Fun Flock to his hat brim & pompom and to the snow.  I embossed the snowflakes with white embossing powder and then sponged light blue ink for the sky.  I rounded the corners and added an MFT Electric Red mat.  The panel was mounted with foam tape.  The DSP is from Echo Park's 'tis the Season 6x6 pad.  The sentiment is from the same set.  The card base is Coredinations Heavy White CS (from JoAnn's).  

Now hop over to Christmas Card Challenges blog and see what inspiration my talented teammates have to show you.  I hope you will play along with us this time.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
