Snowman Wagon Wheels

What a happy little scene with a  snowman, birds and snowflakes!
Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge this week of Feb. 23rd over at 'Cupcake Inspirations' and the  inspiration this week is:

I took the colour of the three blue birds as my inspiration and  using one of the outline  images from the Doodle Pantry digital stamp set 'Wagon Wheels 1'  created my card. The image only has two birds, so I 
printed the image  twice and coloured one of the birds from the spare, cut it out and placed it on the left hand twig of the snowman. I now had the three birdies I wanted. The snowman's hat, two of the birds and the two side wheels were all made dimensional using double sided foam tape.
:For some lovely inspiration stop by the Doodle Pantry Blog site and have a look.

  11. What a darling card! Perfect for the winter we've had. We could fill that wagon many times over with the amount of snow we had this year. Had another dusting this morning but nothing much. Right now we can see the grass but I'm not sure it will last long. I love your choice of the blue and white. The embossing and embellishments are perfect. The embossing looks like snow balls!
