Naughty Snowman

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown  has a colour challenge for you today. We're even giving you a bit more choice as you have to use a minimum of three colours (not including neutrals) from our wintery colour palette but you can use them all,if you like!

 My card took a while, two evenings in a row I sat down to craft and didn't do anything I was happy with.  Then tonight, when I came home from work an idea hatched and here he is..

The stamps are all magazine freebies. I stamped the snowman and fussy cut him out.  i also stamped his clothing and cut those out too, and a little 'carrot' nose. The paper is from Sweater Weather and was an idea from my fruitless evenings (so I guess they weren't completely wasted!).  The card base is a gorgeous pearlescent red, so I think I've used 5 of the given colours!
I'm going to join in again with another Christmas challenge blog, Completely Christmas, it's only their second week so if you love Christmas challenges like I do, give it a whirl, anything Goes over there!

  10. I think your snowman is too cute to call him "naughty"! :) I've been in a creative slump lately too, so I know how frustrating it can be when the creativity isn't hitting.

  11. I love this cute little snow guy! Perfect colouring for the challenge. Hugs, Gill x

  12. What a cute little snowman! I really love the colors you've chosen, they works very well together!
