Mr. Snowman

Here is a card that I made for the challenge over at Squigglefly Challenge Blog this week.

The challenge theme for this week is "Christmas in July!" This is a great chance to start your holiday card collection early!

I used Jane Beljo's handsome Mr. Snowman for my card. Ok, I may have cheated a little. I colored him last year, but didn't get to use it on a card. Here he is, happily (or so I hope) with some Memory Box scraps. I added the swirls on his tummy for a little personality. =) After inking the edges of the card base, I also smeared some Frosted Lace Stickles on them for a little extra texture.

Hope you like it and hope you can play along with us this week. Please check here for all the details.

Hope you have a wonderful day! =)
