Inspired By: Melted Snowman


These Inspired By Card Challenge has the most intriguing challenge this week... 
take a look

I had to play along, especially with friends on the design team who came up 
with the most clever interpretations!

The colors, of course inspired my card, but a melting snowman? I had nothing.
So, instead I used just the head of a new favorite, a Tim Holtz Thinlets die set,
Cool Yule. He looks rather perplexed at having a monocled eye and only a head, 
and I love his sassy wide eyed stare!

Inspired By gives us this sketch to use, which I did use, loosely (perfectly admissible!),

the Greetery's Snowflake Soiree set comes with a series of stencils, giving you the 
option to change colors with your snowflakes. I didn't really change my colors as
much as use a lighter touch with the B stencil. Betsy even included a stencil that lets you
shade or color below the snowflakes. The wonderful sentiment is the Greetery's Simply

Had to include the polka dots in the inspiration photo with the dotty bow tie! 
Theres a lot of shimmer on my card too, like it's been out in the frosty air.

Well, that's it folks. Think I came close to the inspiration, but if you want to 
see some brilliance, check out the designers at:
