All the World Loves a Snowman....{PKS Challenge 14~11}

Morning everyone!
Welcome to another fun Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge!!!!
For this challenge you can pick either the sketch OR the Photo/Color picture OR combine them both! A little twist to what we were doing with our challenges :) Also instead of having 2 weeks to enter, you now have a month to enter! So get playing with your PKS and enter to win an AWESOME prize!
So for my card, I used the sketch and pulled 2 colors from the color pallet to come up with this card....hope you like it!
I so LOVE the  July release stamps and just had to make another card using the new Snow Hugs Snowman. I did a a lot of paper piecing for her hat, scarf and gloves and then popped her up onto a circle die cut from MCT.
For the "starburst" part of my card, I watched this video on youtube for the idea on how go about making it. I have never made one of these cards, so this video was perfect.To add more details to my card, I did go ahead and add some machine stitching in between each of the pattern papers. I really like the way that turned out!
I finished my card off with some Trendy Twine and the sentiment, also from  the new Snow Hugs Snowman stamp set.

Supplies Used:
Peachy Keen Stamps~ Snow Hugs Snowman
My Creative Time~Bunch of Fun Circle Dies
Trendy Twine~ Stormy
Lawn Fawn Designer Paper, chalk, copic markers, sewing machine

I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with the new challenge!!
