Winter wonderland Snowman

Hola friends, thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a great weekend, my was very windy. The weather in Southern Cali is what my friend would call "bipolar"? It changes from one extreme to another. It really doesn't help my cold situation, because I've basically been hibernating since Monday of last week. It's been extremely cold for my taste during the night, and we've had fog. rain, and really gusty winds..... I know there's no such things as tornado's or hurricanes in L.A., but I imagine that's what the winds may sound like if I ever experienced one? Anyway, since "the weather outside is frightful".... lol. I thought I'd make this lovely card featuring a snowman in a "winter wonderland" motif. Again I'm experimenting more with lifting the backgrounds inches off the base card, it just gives it a more special feel to the card other than just the centerpiece to be the focal point. The snowman stamp I've had for quite some time. I like that it has it's own shadow as oppose to me adding the light blue hue to give it that effect. also it gave me the chance to finally use some of this SU! Baja Breeze striped ribbon.

And for the inside I wanted to play with another scene, by cutting piece of the same color card stock, Baja Breeze, and edge it with embossing glitter. Unfortunately the camera didn't capture it as I liked but trust me, it looks very And lastly I just wanted to add a simple sentiment, so as to give it room for a written message. I hope you like it.
