Skiing snowman

Today starts a new challenge over at Catch the Bug and this week is photo challenge week.

I was inspired by the skier and went with AKV snowman - ski and colors and DP for a masculine look.
I cut out a mask for the slope and sponged the blue sky, added water and a bit of frantage.  A Christmas sentiment was used and I stitched along the edges.

This card is also for:
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Anything Christmas
Fab 'n' Funky - #339 Christmas
Creative Corner - Winter Wonderland
Moving along with the Times - #39 For A Man

So cute card, Pia, and I think it's perfect for masculine but also for feminine recipients. Love the blue sky near the black&white dp, such a great effect, and your stitching adds a lot of interest to the whole design!

Super look for your inspiration. This Snowie looks so cute skiing down that hilly slope, with the scarf flying out behind him. I love the b&w check paper mat, and of course your stitching always finishes off things so well. Also like the frontage snow effect too! TFS & Hugs
