Poinsettia Snowman

     A new Progressive Challenge has started at The Outlawz and the image this month was provided by Sandi's Samples; this darling little snowman who was just crying out to be done in monochromatic blues.



     I used my ProMarkers to color the snowman, then fussy cut him.  I printed a different sentiment (his sign originally said "Chill!") and layered it onto the front.  I mounted the snowman on dimensional dots and he just pops off the paper.

     The papers are from DCWV and I chose similar yet different dp patterns in two different shades of blue; the darker one has Christmas trees and snowflakes and the lighter blue has just snowflakes.  Believe it or not, it's the darker paper which is die cut (Spellbinders.)  I layered it on top of the lighter blue paper.  I'm using up leftover negatives again.

     The silver ribbon was in my stash and seemed perfect for this card design.  I made my bow into a snowflake shape and then added a gem snowflake for a touch of embellishment.  I put a tiny bit of glitter on the top of snowman's hat.
