Peace On Earth #8

Hello friends.  Had to have a play with a new snowman die and it fit perfectly with the new Peace On Earth Challenge.  Take a look at the mood board and see if you can tell where I was inspired...

Well obviously if I have a new snowman die, I was inspired by the upper right photo, but I was also inspired by the plaid in the upper left corner, and came up with this card:

Isn't the snowman just ADORABLE?!!  He's from Cottage Cutz (Winter Snowman) and I ink blended all the pieces with turquoise and green inks (Gina K) and the body with a little bit of blue ink.  I used what ink was left on my blending brush to make the stenciled plaid background (PFS - Diamond Plaid).

I used PFS Mini Slimline Stitched Scallop Rectangle die to create my frame and die cut and stacked 3 of them for some dimension.  The dimension of my mini slimline card is 6 1/4 x 3 1/4, and I just LOVE this size card!!  The die cut snowflake behind my snowman is from a tag die set from Gina K.

My sentiment is from MB (Let it Snow Posh Script) and I finished this card with a few PFS gems.  I'm not sure if I'll save this for next Christmas or use it as a Winter birthday card...we'll play that one by ear!

Lots of FABULOUS inspiration from the DT, and you can check it all out HERE to play along and get a head start on those Christmas cards!  This challenge is open till Feb. 3rd
