Heartfelt Wishes from D2D

I think it's funny that we have so many Christmas images of wintery snow, snowmen etc .... since our Christmas is in the middle of our summer!  It was fun to play with a wintery snowman actually in WINTER!  The image used to participate in the Designed 2 Delight Digital Stamps challenge this week was a lovely snowman!

Ingredients used: Cardstock, Papers, Die Cut Border, Rhinestones - Kaisercraft; Glaze Pens, Stardust Glitter Pens - Sakura; Paper Flowers  - Green Tara, White Flocking.
I only coloured parts of this image - given that he's a snowman, he should be white!  I used a glaze pen on his carrot nose,, holly and leaves, and the heart he holds.  I used a Stardust pen on his scarf to litz it up a little.  I didn't trim off the snow base he stands on, rather I covered with with flocking, so it's lovely and fluffy, like snow.  I used die cut borders to create horizontal lines, and trimmed them with Ice Blue Rhinestones. I also usedthe rhinestones on snowman's buttons.  On the top border, I  added a couple of paper flowers, and a rhinestone centre.  I didn't use a sentiment, but I'm sure one could be added later if needed!
This week the image at the Designed 2 Delight challenge is a freebie, so it would be a good time to pop in and join the fun!   The new challenge is posted on Thursday night! Thanks for peepin' ....

hugs and blessings,
