Color challenge -my krafty snowman

This morning I had the experience of bringing both my boys (ages 3 and 4) with me to the dentist! I hadn't planned it that way, but my DH unexpectedly had to go out of town and these dental appts are scheduled months in advance. I was so nervous I didn't sleep a wink last night. So, I brought them back with me (why?) and after about 2 minutes and seeing the absolute look of HORROR on my 3 yo face, they were ushered to the front to play with some building blocks! Then all was GOOD and they were angels! I am so proud of them. Just had to share :-)

So after that, it was quite relaxing for me to get to play today's SCS color challenge. Em challenged us to use kraft, real red and black. I decided to use this cute little snowman from Verve's newly released Snow Wonderful. He is the CUTEST! I stamped the long snowflake stamp in versamark and embossed it with white EP on kraft paper. The snowman is colored with copic markers with the hat and scarf popped up and painted with shimmerz. The red tafetta ribbon, burlap string and shimmerz from Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts.
