Dilly Beans Give-A-Way!!

Hello Paper Canteen friends!  Happy Monday!  The lovely Megan - owner and illustrator of Dilly Bean designs is having a fabby freebie and give-a-way starting today!  Come by the challenge site and grab up this crazy adorable Snowman Family digi for free!

The challenge is to use this awesome image in any creation of your choosing, link it up at the Dilly Beans Challenge blog by December 19th for a chance to win some super duper crafty swag!! 

I've kept my creation simple and sweet.  I've stamped my card base with a Hero Arts background stamp design.  I've inked up in Versamark and then heat set with white embossing powder.  I printed out my image four times.  Once on white stock, then three more times on patterned papers.  I colored my image with my Copics and then paper pieced hats and scarves as well as the heart on the belly of the snow person in the foreground.  SOOOOOOOOOOOO cuteeeeeeeeee!!!

I stitched using red thread around my Nestie cut circle and then backed it with self-adhesive cork.  I added to my card adding self-adhesive rhinestones scattered about.  I took a strip of PTI DP, cut the ends to create a banner of sorts and used a MFT sentiment to finish it off.  As a lasting touch, I added Glossy Accents to all of the buttons on the snow people as well as the heart. 

I can't wait to see what you all create over at the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog!!  Come on over and play!!
