Serendipity Stamps Challenge #25

Hello, hello!

How is your week going? It didn't take long to get right into the swing of the holidays, did it? Today it is time once again for a new challenge on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. The challenge this week is to create a shaped card.

Using a few circle dies and some freehand cutting, I came up with this guy.

This idea really started when I was looking through my stamps and saw the Merry Christmas Arc stamp. It reminded me of a banner, and I thought it would be cute to have a snowman hold the message.

I also used some other Serendipity images to decorate him - his body is stamped with the Large Snowflake Flourish and then brushed with Perfect Pearls for some shimmer. His scarf and glove patterns were created using the Large Cupcake stamp. Just a little fun :)

Won't you join us for this week's challenge? All you need to do is use at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your shaped card and link it up over on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.
