A Very Merry Snowman

Since hubby is working today on a hay baler and his pickup I started blog surfing to see what kind of inspiration I could get.  And I found a challenge!  I follow Red Rubber Inspirationals and love their stamps but this card doesn't use any of theirs.  Oops.  But I do have oodles!  This challenge  #127  is called Christmas in July and required something stamped.  Ok.  The snowman, snowflakes and the sentiment are stamped.

After thinking about it for a moment I realized that the white embossed snowflakes ARE from a set from RRD called "Ornamental Snowflakes".  The snowman is a digi from Pickled Potpourri Designs and text is from a retired set by TAC called Jingle Jolly. I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder of snowflakes. I cut the opening using a Spellbinder die.  The blue ribbon and paper are from a cool DCWV  paper pack that I've had, like, forever!

I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush on the snowman's hat rim and ball but it just doesn't show up well in photos.  And I colored this little guy with Copic markers but didn't try to do any blending or fancy stuff.  Not bad.  The overall design was inspired by a card on Pinterest that I pinned in my Cards - Christmas board.  So don't forgot to hop over to the Red Rubber Inspirationals blog and check out some fun Christmas cards.  I'm going to have plenty this year!
