Penny Black and More - November Challenge

Good morning and thanks so much for stopping by! 
I hope you are enjoying your day. It's gotten pretty chilly over here, but that's to be expected since we are only 3 weeks away from December.

Since today is the first Sunday of the Month, it's time for our November Challenge at Penny Black and More. This month our theme is 

"Any die will do".

I surely hope you'll join us, lots of prizes up for grabs again, by Penny Black, Stampalot, Classy Crafts, and Flonz Crafts.

Here is what I made for today's challenge. 

I used the super adorable stamp "Skiing Snowman" by Penny Black of course. For my die I decided to use the double scallop square doily by Whimsy Stamps. I used it to make my card front with it.

For a change I got out my copics and colored this cutie using them. I found this image fairly easy to color with the markers, as there really wasn't too much to color, I usually just get frustrated when using them.

My sentiment is from the set "----" by Whimsy stamps. I used part of the stamp " Baroque Corners"  from Flonz stamps behind the sentiment to add a little interest. The sentiment banner on the top is also from Whimsy stamps "Holiday Circle Banners".

The sky was done using an ink applicator  and I added lots of sparkles to the "snow" part of the image. It's a very clean and simple card, I simply embellished with a little clear heart shaped button and some white twine. I did some paper piercing, and I used the same double doily die for my template as there are these small holes along the die.
