Prize - $12 Gift Certificate!

I chose to paper piece the hat and scarf of 'Snowy' (by Penny Black). I stamped him directly on to my card blank, and coloured him using watercolour pencils, then paper pieced his clothes with some snippets of paper from the 'Special Delivery' pad by Helz Cuppledich - I loved the patchwork effect! I added some shading to the paper using watercolour pencils, and some sparkle to the snowy ground with some Stickles. The sentiment stamp is by Pollycraft for C. C. Designs.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Who doesn't like Snowy the snowman? If they don't, they need to get their eyes checked. He is the cutest snowman and your paper piecing is absolutely fantastic with that plaid paper. This is one of the cutest card ever! Thanks for joining us at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' for our challenge of ANYTHING GOES WITH WINTER. Hugs, Gail

Oh how totally adorable this is Helen! Really clever idea to paper piece his scarf and hat too. I actually have a very similar PB stampsof him sitting down with a Christmas parcel (called Sweet Snowman) - in the Playground toy box as a future prize! But, this particular stamp has to be one of the very best produced by PB - so cute! And, I love the CAS design as well.

Great to see you in the Playground.
