Snowman Wishes

Hi Blogging Buddies!
It is Friday....Yippee!!
No plans this weekend except for relaxing I hope :)

I have a Christmas card to share with you. I was hoping to get one Christmas card a day done for the whole month but I am behind by 3 :(
Hopefully will get a move on them this weekend!
Today's card is a simple circle base that I used SCAL to shape and weld.
When I was making this card I knew I wanted a snowman on it...front and center and I just purchased the cutest set from The Cutting Cafe...the snowman shape card.
Instead of making the snowman shape I just used all this pieces to put him together.
He was cut at 4.5" using white card stock
My card base is Kraft Card stock
All of the DP is from My Minds Eye~O Christmas Tree Paper Pack
I made my own snow drifts by cutting the circle in a wavy line and attached them to my card with foam dots for some additional dimension (the picture doesn't really show that but you can see on his scarf the dimension)
For his hat and for alittle background I added stickles
3 black buttons were used instead of the file cuts for his buttons.
The adorable face is from PKS Winter Faces
The sentiment is from MCT~All Around Christmas
I used my copics in YR04 and YR07 for the snowman's nose
A little pink chalk for the cheeks
Lots of white gel pen doodles
and
an adorable snowflake punch in the matching background paper

I am entering this into the following challenges:
PaperPlay~Buttons
CropStop~Snowman
Pile It On~Keep Warm
Polka Dooodle~ Shape Card
Made Especially For You~Pink, Green and Blue
Bah! Humbug!~ Snowman

I hope you like my card!
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT night :)
