Snowmen Trio

Hi and welcome!  I'm here with a card for the latest Freshly Made Sketches challenge and this week, I'm your hostess. 

This is the third iteration of this card!  The snowmen were on all three cards and were re-housed three times until I decided this would be their home 😄 I ink-blended a night sky onto a piece of white cardstock using Distress Inks and then die-cut with both the Inside/Out Stitched Circle die and the Galactic Background die.  I used the dies from Scenic Snow Globe to create my background scene, adding some Snow Marker for snowy dimension.

The snowmen come from last year's Stamptember Gina K set and the sentiment comes from this year's Stamptember Gina K set.  To try and disguise that I stamped the sentiment a bit too far left, I added some irridescent snowflake sequins.

And, in the interests of full disclosure, the smallest snowman is sitting up a little bit too high but I had to position him like that as I damaged the snowman beside him moving him around so many times!

Thanks for visiting!  The DT have created some gorgeous cards from my sketch so I hope you'll check them out.

I'm going to link this up to the Holiday challenge at Addicted to Stamps.

I'm so glad you fiddled with your design until you got it just perfect :) Your little snowmen are so cute and are colored beautifully! I also love your night sky and how you added dimension to the trees and sky with your snow fun and super sweet!
