 The snowman digital image from "A Day For Daisies" is so cute that I couldn't  make just one card. I colored about a half dozen more of this little guy and then worked on a few more cards with a snowman theme.

This card is a variation of the flip card. I don't have the special dies to cut the circle flip so I did some strategic cutting with the Spellbinders Circle Die. 

 When I used  the snowflake embossing folder  for the inside of the card I used a diffuser so the the center circle would not be embossed. I stamped it with a "Warm Thoughts" sentiment from Paper Smooches.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:
Words 2 Scrap By Challenge #1 "My Favorite Things"
This is a new Card Challenge Blog and we are to  use words to inspire our creativity. This month our inspiration comes in the form of the song "My Favorite Things" from  Rogers and Hammerstein's "The Sound Of Music"
 The inspiration for my card came from the words of the song "Snowflakes that fall on my nose and eyelashes".

Cards In Envy
The current theme is "SNOW BUDDY LIKE YOU"
My card is A2 size. I colored the image with colored pencils and used baby oil to blend the colors.
Card stock is Stampin Up and Spellbinders Circle Die and a Snowflake embossing folder was used.
