Have Yourself a Merry Little Snowman

Pin It Now! I have so, so much to do this week. A huge party to plan, tax prep, homeschool as usual, and card orders to fill. All awesome stuff, except for the taxes! But here I am on Monday, and Merry Monday's challenge stops me in my tracks again!

Snowmen are the theme, and I punched this little guy from an oval and circle punch. I love his little polka dot pom pom hat!

Gumball Green Core'dinations is the card base, scrubbied up and embossed with Delicate Details snowflake folder. Snow Festival patterned paper for the trim. I hand cut a tag from First Edition, and cut layers for snow drifts which are painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (awesome stuff).

The whole card is sprinkled with bits of vintage, flower, and blue circle sequins, and glitter glass.

I was going for a nice, simple look, but just kept adding things til it felt done. Once the rhinestones went on the tag for snowflakes, I sat back and said, Yep. Done!

I used the sketch from RetroSketches for the layout, you can check them out here.
 And of course, you should join in all the Merriness at Always Playing With Paper!
