*how about another snowman?*

It's Open House at The Saltbox Studio, and they've announced another contest! So you'd better head on over there to join in the celebration!

While you're here, I thought I'd share another card idea with you. The "Winter Wonders" set is just amazing, and there are so many fun ways to use it! For this card, I softened the edges of the card base with white craft ink and stamped some random stars in the background... just enough stars to highlight the snowman. Then I left a little extra room on the right edge of the red cardstock layer for a vertical row of stars, which tied things together quite nicely. I sponged the edges of the snowman layer with creamy carmel ink, added a little scalloped edge and some wide red gingham ribbon...the perfect finishing touches.
