FSS Hat Tipping Snowman

I almost forgot to post this card in time. It was made for the Merry Monday weekly Christmas Card
Challenge ovedr at Always Playing with Paper. This week is challenge along with the sketch is Clean and Simple. This is not my style of card making but I had some gorgeous papers in my stash for so long and thought they woulkd be just perfect for this challenge. I had to turn the sketch 90° to make it work.
There are shimmery swirls in the paper that show up on the photo but are only seen on the card depending on which angle you are looking at it.

The Hat Tipping Snowman and Flying Winter Birds images are from Fred She Said. They are both the pre-colored images. The Winter Wonderland is from Close to my Heart.

The hand stitching was done with white embroidery floss. Yes, I even sew straight stitching by hand. I like the look of it much better then done by a sewing machine.

I added some white Liquid Applique to the base of the snowman to tie him into the scene. The I added some chunky Glass Glitter to add more texture and sparkle.
