Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful

Greetings to everyone. Thank you to all my new followers and welcome to my blog. It has been so much fun seeing all those Angels being made with my tutorial and template. I am happy to be back blogging and back in my craft room. I would like to share with you my first card for 2011. With temperatures here in the 20's when I supposedly live in a tropical climate.....I am thinking of Snowmen!!!

I loved the shading of the hat so much when coloring with my new Copics, I decided to go with it as the main color of my card. The brown gives the card a nice warm feeling. On the inside of the card, I created an ornament the can be easily untied and used on the Christmas tree, or as a beautiful tag to go on a gift to someone special. Here is the Recipe:
Inkadinkadoo Snowman Stamp
Martha Stewart Bird and Branch Punch Around the Page
Spellbinders Fleur Di Lis Die Cuts
Spellbinders Scalloped Oval Nestabilities

Cuttlebug Corner Die
Plastic Snowflake from the Dollar Tree
