I NEVER would have thought about this color combo, but I must say I LOVE IT! It all works so well together, super cute snowman!

What a fabulous winter card!! So many think of snowmen as Christmas cards, but if you live in a snowy wintery state, they are perfect for a few months!! LOVE the colors on this one Silke ;)

I love your card, Silke! Snowmen are a favorite of mine. They remind me of my mom who collected them.

Unknown said...

Silke, this is awesome! Love the accent color of orange! Your snowman is just so warm and cute!

Heather Jensen said...

What a darling Snowman, Silke. I love how you added glitter to your snowman. I think I NEED that embossing folder too! ;)
