Mashup Challenge 23

DSCF4021

One of the perks of being a Mashup Maven at Friday Mashup is that you get to be a guest designer!  Woohoo!  So today, the Mashup Challenge is a sketch:

and since I need a couple more Christmas cards, I chose to make a vintage scene using the snowman from Jolly Old Saint Nick:

with some snowflakes from Northern Hearts as my background images…..all in shades of Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Crumb Cake.  I used a blender pen for coloring and shading; a Glimmer brad to attach my sentiment, which was colored using a Chocolate Chip marker, then punched with the Modern Label punch.  The final embellishment is some VV seam binding and Tinsel trim….I just can’t seem to get away from that stuff!
