Warm winter Wishes - Sassy Cheryl #92

This week at Sassy Cheryl the theme is Winter. I thought this adorable flat bottom snowman would fit the bill for the winter theme and you can find him HERE

As I mentioned, I have tons of December birthdays, so I thought I would use this adorable snowman for my niece Gina’s Birthday who’s birthday is on the 6th, I have another nieces birthday on the 26th of this month. Told you I have tons of birthdays this month, and still have a few more birthdays to go. I also followed this beautiful sketch at Papertake Weekly which you can find HERE

I used this beautiful paper that I found at Michaels from Reflections which to me is very warm and rich, and because it has kraft undertones, I decided to give coloring on kraft paper a try and with the help of my DT buddy Dorcas and her wonderful tutorial here is my first attempt at coloring on kraft paper.

The inside of my card..sorry it's not a good shot: I used my Cricut again This time the Child's First Year Cartridge

My Angle Shot:
