One For The Boys

Hello again, my second post of the day is to tell you about the new challenge we have for you today over at Polka Doodles and it will be my last post for a bit, apart from a scheduled one next week as we're off to the Lake District tomorrow for a well earned break.
The challenge over at Polka Doodles is to make something for the men and boys in your life and I decided on a Christmas card as we have several male family members on their own so I need to make some cards to appeal to them and what else could I choose but my favourite snowman! The image and all the other elements are from the Here Comes Christmas CD.

I printed out the snowman on to cartridge paper and coloured him with Aquamarkers. The woolly look to his scarf is made by adding wiggly lines of colour in a stripe pattern and it results in a quite fluffy look.
I added the image panel to a red mat and partially covered the card blank with some of the gorgeous snowflake paper from the CD.
I printed my sentiment sheet out on to another piece of snowflake paper in a different colour and cut out the one I wanted, adding it to a mat of red card.

Have a great day and a lovely weekend.
Fliss xx
