Snowman Skates (Bugaboo image)

For my Jo's Scrap Shack Guest Designer card, click here.  

Hello, everyone.  Before I share my card, I would like to extend a warm welcome to my newest follower - Joyce Tompkins - so happy you joined me! 

There's a fun week-long event over at Catch the Bug called Bugaboo's Second Annual Holiday Chaos - are you playing?  I decided to join in their Tuesday 1-2-3 Recipe Challenge.  I used 1 image (snowman), 2 of something (sentiments), and 3 of something else (black gems on the snowman's buttons).  

This fun image from Bugaboo is called Snowman Skates and I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape.  As mentioned above, I added 3 black gems to the snowman's buttons.  

I saw a fun sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch and wanted to try it!  It's the first time I'm playing there!

My dp is from Lawn Fawn and I placed it according to the sketch but popped up with foam tape.  I stamped two sentiments, both from an old wood-mounted set from Plaid/All Night Media.  The "Wishing You" sentiment was stamped in Ancient Page Red directly onto the card base, and I heat-embossed the "A Joyous Holiday Season" in white (The Artful Stamper) on a red scrap, which I hand-cut into a banner.  I love how this card turned out!

My little elf - Eli - wants to go skating with the snowman!  We need to find you some skates, Eli! He has a habit of sneaking into my photos!  But that's okay - now I can link up to DL.ART's Second Annual Elf Antics Linky Party.
