Snowman in the Trees

     Well, it isn't snowing here but it's been raining for the past 36 hours, almost without stopping.  That's fine with us since we had a much dryer December and early January than is normal.  Since we're just coming out of a severe 4 year drought, we are grateful for every drop that falls.

     But I did combine two, wintry, images from Beccy's Place for this fun card celebrating snow.


I printed the two images separately and colored the background (both sky and snow on the ground) around the trees with ProMarkers.  I colored the snowman with ProMarkers, also.  I added sparkle gel ink to the snowflakes hanging from his hat but that's hard to see in the photo.

   I fussy cut the snowman and used Pop Dots to adhere him to the card front.  I added only the tiny ribbon bow as embellishment.  I haven't decided on a sentiment yet because I'm not sure how I'm going to use the card.  I think it'll probably end up as a birthday card.

  10. I'm happy to read about the rain NC, especially after such a long drought. We're always happy to see the weather turn too.
    You did a fabulous job on your card, I love how you've combined the two images. I also like the combination of colours in the background, it definitely gives your card a grey, wintry look. I think it would be great as a Christmas card or a birthday card for someone who celebrates in winter.
    Cheers,
    Beccy
