Very Merry!

Living in the Arizona desert means there are no real snowmen in the winter but I don't mind! It's been a long time since I lived in the cold climate found in upstate New York. Here's my card for Double Trouble Challenge #43. This is a biweekly event beginning on Monday, November 18, through Sunday, December 1, 2019. Here is the information necessary to play along:

Trouble Maker - Thing 1 (required): Bring on the Glitz!
Double Dare - Thing 2 (optional): Link up with Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #483.
Twisted Sister - Thing 3 (optional): Include a snow-person in your design.

I rarely make a square card but decided to go with a 5" x 5" card base to use a new square die. The panels of patterned paper, glitter paper and silver-striped vellum were layered. The image, which had been downloaded, resized, colored and fussy cut was adhered with foam tape. The sentiment was stamped and die cut then, along with the snowflakes, adhered with foam tape. The snowman's nose was finished off with Glossy Accents and gems were added to the snowflakes and sentiment banner. The inside was decorated with additional paper and snowflakes.

We'd be so pleased to see your entry over at the blogs for Double Trouble Challenge #43 and Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #483.
