Christmas Snowman

Last week I so enjoyed working with the sketch at Posh Designs it was so unusual and this week there is another lovely one that I just had to have a go at.

I have added a little bit extra to my card and I have used the sewing machine as well.

 I love snowflakes as much as I love butterflies, and I enjoyed making this one.


The image is a freebie from Just4fun crafts. Thankyou Jennifer he is lovely.
I have used Snowtex on the snowman to give him some texture and Ice Diamond on the icicles. Other sparkles include glitter, star dust stickles and sakura glitter pens. The DI used is walnut stain and the ticket is from Miss Cutiepie.

I am sure you can see how I have translated the sketch, I am really pleased with the outcome.

Enjoy your day and take care. Luv B xxx
