Warm Thoughts!

Good Monday morning! I thought I would pop in real quick and share my card for the new challenge for Shop Pumpkin Spice that just started - Snowmen/Snowman/Snowperson/Snowpeople (you get the idea!) - I am also linking this up to the Ribbon Carousel Winter Spirit Challenge, and the Paper Smooches Guest Design Search. Here is what I made:
I used some paper from an Echo Park 6x6 paper pad (you can still find it HERE at Shop Pumpkin Spice) and a fun Paper Smooches stamp set (also found HERE at Shop Pumpkin Spice)
I cut my background frame with a Spellbinder's Die, then paper pieced my snowman, colored lightly with some Copic markers to outline. I added him holding the coffee cup - just because it seemed fun! 
The sentiment is from a different Paper Smooches set called Sentiment Sampler. I hand trimmed some banners, and tucked them behind my framed shape, then added some rows of bling. 
For the background, I scored a frame around the edges, then inked with distress ink. Attached a doily, then mounted my frame over the top with foam adhesive. 
Attached the sentiment, and finished off with a bit of jute twine! 
Thanks for stopping by today! And make sure and head on over to Shop Pumpkin Spice to link up your own creation for the Snowman Challenge!
