Snowman Challenge

I haven't posted a card in a while, been busy trying to keep DH comfortable and making sure he does as the doctor ordered.  I did want to try a new challenge this week, Creative Cutter Room has a snowman card challenge on their blog which ends December 28th.  I just acquired the Cricut cartridge Snow Friends and thought this would be a great way to "test drive" the cartridge.  I selected my image and the accompanying accessories to create my card:

The challenge requirement include:
  1. monochrome 
  2. border
  3. metal
I just had to go with red!  My design paper is from Basic Grey's "Jovial" collection.  My border was made with a ribbon from Bazzil, Cricut "Winter Lace" snowflakes and a red metal jingle bell.  The eyes, nose and mouth were made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

Hope everyone is ready for Christmas!  Thanks for visiting, I love reading your comments!
