Paper Players #23

DSCF6019

LOL, I should have saved Saturday’s post for the Paper Players challenge, which is to use a snowman in your creation!  I have had this idea in my head for a while, so last night (when I couldn’t sleep) I got some buttons from my old button can and went to work:

I free-hand cut the scarf, hat, nose and arms from cardstock, and snowy hills from vellum; I added some “buttons” using black brads, and I used one of the little flags from one of my CTD team member’s flag set along with a sentiment from Punch Pals. I added a red floss bow, and there is glitter all over the place!  I haven’t added a sentiment to the inside because I am thinking this could be a birthday card OR a Christmas card!  Thanks for visiting today!
