MMSC 28--a double challenge!!

The sketch challenge for this week at Midnight Madness is the layout seen here AND we had to make it a christmas card. I LOVE this snowman. I bought him a few years ago and he still makes me giggle. I borrowed the corner punch from Barley, a co-worker, and decided to play around with it here on this card. I also used her snowflake cuttlebug folder for some texture. Barley and I freely share our stamping supplies with each other because we recognize how it doubles how many tools/stamps we have. I like my little ribbon idea in the upper right hand corner and how I placed all of the pearls. I thought that was creative. I didn't put a dangle on the lower left corner as that corner was already extremely busy. Besides, I couldn't find anything in my stash that would work.
Thanks for looking and please leave a comment. Otherwise, I feel like I am talking to myself.

  2. LOL, you are not taking to yourself, although at times I know I am. I too agree, that stamped image puts a smile on my face too, he sure is cute. Well colored too, very nice embellishments and dry embossing. Hope you don't mind, I looked at your new paint and carpeting and the ice pack child!

    Thanks for joining us at midnight madness, we love having you.
