The Paper Players #124 - Snowman Challenge!



                                         

This week at the Paper Players we are all about Snowmen!  Although, it's too warm here in Iowa for snowmen, I would really enjoy some snow to make snowmen with.

Today I used Frosty Friends to make my card.  This little group of snowmen just make me happy.  I especially like the little bunny peeking out from behind the snowman on the end.

I stamped that fun little group of friends on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock using Stazon, Jet Black.  Then I colored them using watercolor pencils.



Don't mind my still wet glue popping out of the buttons.....  For the base of the card, I embossed it with my Northern Flurry EF, then used some Frost White Shimmer Paint and a sponge dauber to go over the top of the snowflakes and around the edges too.


Hope you've enjoyed this week's card - now be sure to check out what the other fabulous designers came up with, then go create your own snowman fun and link it up!

Very pretty, Jen! Love the softness of your colouring & background, with the bright pops of red. I thought you had added the white spots in your buttons on purpose, lol, they look like cute little snowballs! :)

Love this, Jen! I'm a big fan of pool party and red and it looks fantastic here. Love your sfot coloring job on the snowy friends and I agree, the bunny is the cutest part of that stamp!
