A Snowman For the Holidays

Inspired by the black & white of Color My Heart Color Dare #214, the Thistle and Pear were perfect for a 'pop' of color with the snowman.  The pieces of the snowman were cut using the adorable Cozy Christmas Thin Cuts die cuts and then stamped using the coordinating stamp set.  This is a really fun set to create with, and is available in the CTMH Holiday Expressions collection through the end of this year.

Using the Thin Cuts dies, the hat and scarf were cut using some patterned papers from the Penelope kit.  For the background, a great black & white paper from the Uptown Fundamentals reminds me of falling snow.  The simple card design is FMS #214 at Freshly Made Sketches, which is one of my favorite sketch blogs.
