Sweet Snowman

I found this snowman image tucked into a swap card I received, so I don't know who makes the image, but it's a a sweet one. I simply colored it with pencils, die-cut the oval, and added piercing around the edge.
The card base has been sitting in my Christmas file for ages -- as I recall I started to do a sketch challenge ages ago and abandoned the project for forgotten reasons (realistically, probably lack of time). The snowman and a die-cut snowflake seemed to fit perfectly with what I had, and I have no idea what the original sketch called for. I am making a concerted effort to take advantage of half-made items and put them to good use.
This card is for these challenges:

  1. Great patterned papers in the background to show off your snowman. And kudos to you for using up the half done bits you have lying around. I always have good intentions but it rarely gets beyond that.

  2. Love the patterned papers as a setting for this adorable snowman. I love it when you can use a bit from your snippet stash for a new creation. Thanks for linking up and playing with us at Happy Little Stampers April Christmas Challenge.
