Saturday Sketch challenge 174

What a wonderful sketch the operators have for you this week and you'll want to head over and check out their amazing samples!

I went very clean and simple with this week's sketch. First ~ some measurements.

Base: 11 x 4 1/4" scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 3: 3 x 2 3/4"
Layer 4: 2 3/4" x 2 1/2"
Layer 5: 2 1/2" x 2 1/4"

I stamped the snowman from the jolliest time of year with stazon black ink and added some color to the ground with a bashful blue marker. I colored his scarf and hat with bashful blue and real red, adding black at the end.

The "bow tie" bow, was made with Lee Conrey's incredible bow maker (which I love). I embossed the white panel with the petals a plenty die and the big shot!

I hope you're having a great week and you have time to play along with our challenge this week!
Rubbah hugs,
