Snowman Wishes

I guess you can probably tell by now that I really get inspired by blog challenges!  The one I'm excited about today is the week-long Xmas in July event at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog and in particular their Sunday sketch challenge (see sketch below).  For this card, I used a wonderful pre-coloured digi from Melonheadz Illustrations, which was a freebie at one point (thank you - I'm so glad I got this one!).   The digi sentiment is from Trimgym's Digistamps, Papers and Images (thank you, Jo), and it's still available as a freebie here, but hurry - these freebies are for a limited time only.  Other supplies used were:
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • DP:  Marcella by K and dollar store
  • Cutting Dies:  Nellie's Multiframes - ovals and circles
  • Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
  • Gems:  Dollarama

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
