Die Cut Dreams "Snowmen" Challenge

The challenge this week from Die Cut Dreams is Snowmen.  I haven't got any snowmen stamps so went looking through my digistamp files to see what I could find.

In the end I found two images and couldn't decide which one to use so, in the end, used both!!  The first one is a snowman iceskating and can be found here.  The second one was a pre coloured image of a snowman sitting with a bird on a branch which can be found here.

I coloured the skating snowman with ProMarkers and added some glitter glue for highlights.  Matted and layered onto nesties.  I made an easel card and covered it with paper from My Mind's Eye Glitter stack and then punched a border using a Martha Stewart edger.  The addition of a ribbon and sentiment finished the card.  With the snowman and bird I matted and latered onto nesties and added some Polar White flowersoft to the snow and then some glitter glue for highlights.  Again I used paper from My Mind's Eye for the backing.  I then cut a strip of navy cardstock and put it through my Big Shot with a Crafts Too embossing folder and matted this onto silver mirri.  The sentiment is from the Papermania Silent Night set, silver embossed and matted onto silver mirri.  A bow and flower were added.

Thanks for looking.
