Suzie and Snowman (Treasured Times image)

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to extend a warm welcome to two lovely new followers - Patricia and Ellie - so happy to have you here!

Today's card features an adorable image called Suzie and Snowman by Erica Nicomedi at Treasured Times, and I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils, fussy-cut and popped up with foam tape.  This digi is a freebie over at the Treasured Times facebook group and I'm joining in their Countdown to Christmas contest.

I have been on a CAS kick lately and I'm still going strong!  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and I die cut the tag using my La-La Land Stitched Elements and popped up with foam tape.  I tied gold thread around the tag and attached it to the ribbon.  The embossing folder is from Sissix/Tim Holtz and the gold-trimmed ribbon is from my stash.

Delighted you chose to share your project & creativity with us at Aud Sentiments! I like your CAS design... the embossed background gives it a lush look with the white on white texture. The bow and the simple tag for your sentiment balances the design nicely!
