Snowman Merry Christmas Card - WMSC20

This card was made for the Waltzingmouse Stamps WMSC20 sketch challenge.  I did tweak the placement of my snowman panel, I preferred it placed to the left rather than in the centre!

I fell in love with this My Mind's Eye Berries paper, the berries are shiny and glittery and I love the soft green with the white and deep red.  I sponged the edges of the white panel with Sage Shadow ink after paper piecing the snowman and stamping the stitches and sentiment.  I've added tiny punched snowflakes and a rhinestone brad to my tag.
