A Squiggle and a Snowman

The weather has been beautiful today, just right for making a Christmas card, lol! I love this snowman from Sugar Nellie. He is such fun to colour as so many snowmen only have a hat and nose to colour and he makes a great male Christmas card.I added glitter flocking to his fur on his coat. The papers are DCWV and the snowflakes were made with a Sizzix die and brads.

Daisy is my Squiggle card for this month's challenge of 3 DPs, 3 flowers and 3 brads. I used the sketch from I love Promarkers who also want 3 colours only so this card is all 3s. The flowers are Prima with Sizzix cut leaves. I added faux stitching around the image and stitching is the challenge at 2 Sisters.
