Snowman Star


Hi all, I have a soft spot for snowmen images, and when I saw this fun snowman over at Bugaboo Stamps, I flipped!  I couldn't wait to make a card.  The image is called Snowman Star and it's this week's Friday Freebie.  I think it's the cutest, and I really had fun playing with it.

I did some paper piecing both by hand and digitally; and colored and shaded the image with Copics, pastels and Irojiten pencils.  I used a variety of dies: plain and scallop rectangular dies from Spellbinders: Cloud border from Taylor Expressions, and a double-ended banner die from Papertrey Ink.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Catch the Bug Bingo Challenge -- I used polka dots & paper piecing for things starting with "P", a button, and flower soft.
Christmas Crafting Challenge #15 -- Buttons and Twine

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit!
