One Large Snowball

I'm so excited, this is my first post as a Design Team member for Ooh La La Creations, I fell in love with their CD's when I first saw Shoes in Bloom and this was the third time that I had applied to be on their design team, third time lucky - either that or they just felt sorry for me!

Our challenge this fortnight is - SOMEONE SPECIAL - this is the Christmas card I have made for my husband this year, he is very special, particularly at the moment because he has just bought me some lovely new storage for my craft room!  This gorgeous snowman is from the Christmas Presence CD - I just love these whimsical images, they are suitable for both sexes and most ages.

The pyramid image and papers are all from the CD and I have used Kraft card stock to layer everything onto.  My sentiment is computer generated and the die cut snowflake was cut from corrugated Kraft card stock with a selection of Spellbinders dies.  I have kept things quite simple as this is for my husband and just added a little raffia and a small charm to complete my card.

As usual I have decorated the inside using the same papers and layout.

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

The Joanna Sheen Challenge - Cold and Frosty
Crafty Calendar November Challenge - Wrap up Warm for Winter
For Fun Challenges - Burr it's Cold!
Southern Girls Challenge 57 - 46 Days to go (Christmas)
Stamping with the Dragon Challenge - Christmas, NO red and NO green
Delightful Challenges - Let it snow
Creative Craft Challenge - Special Occasion - NOT Birthday

Make sure your pop over the the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our 'SOMEONE SPECIAL' challenge.

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

Is each circle on the snowman cut out and layered on each other or is it just printed to look that way? Love it either way!
A very handsome masculine card.
