Spell it "Snow"

Good Evening with the temperatures hitting the upper 90's here, all I could think of this evening is SNOW. I finally broke down and bought some Nestibilites and wanted to play. I first created the card using Lasting Impressions software then I ran it through my Wizard using the largest rectangle die. After cutting and embossing I pulled out my stylus and finished it off by embossing the letters and snowman. I then mounted them on to circles I punched out. To finish off the card I added the matching buttons to the bottom. I still thought it needed something else, so I decided to sew a zigzag stitch using white thread. I think it adds just the right touch. All papers, stencils and buttons are from Lasting Impressions. I chose tangerine and powder blue as my color choice which is a little odd but works well together:)

Completed card is 5.25 square.
Have a great evening and stay cool!

This is ADOR-ABLE!!! I thought it was red and light blue, but either way, it sure looks great. I think the stitching and the buttons across the bottom are really terrific embellishments to add to this SWEET snowman. Great job! :) Kel
