Paper Sundaes Challenge #48 - Anything but a square

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!  I'm so chilled to the bone right now!  I just got back from my son's cub outing which was a campfire with songs, skits & hot chocolate.  It was a lot of fun but poured rain the whole time.  The kids had a blast though!

It's time for another Paper Sundaes Challenge, #48 to be exact!  This week it's a fun challenge, create a card, anything but a square!  This week we are being sponsored by Meljen's Designs and the DT girls got to use some fabulous images!  I chose to use the image Caroling Snowmen because I LOVE SNOWMEN!    You can pick up this image over at Whimsy Stamps along with many other Meljen's Designs images.
After I coloured the image with copics I cut it out with my circle nesties & then cut the card shape out with my scallop circle nesties.  I decided to add an eyelet and some ribbon so that I could attach this little card to a gift bag or around a bottle of wine.  The card slides open to reveal the inside:
The DP on the inside is Fancy Pants Designs: Glistening Snow and the sentiment stamp is one I picked up in a thrift shop ages ago.  I also punched a couple of mini snowflakes and added them to the front of the card & one inside.  I added some texture with some Snowtex and then added some glitter on top!  I was at least happy to see that I could actually tell there was some glitter on it in the photo!!  This is something I'm still working on mastering.  

Anyways, hope everyone has a chance to check out the great creations the DT gals made this week, they are fabulous as always!  I'm off to do some Christmas shopping tomorrow and then have a family dinner tomorrow night so another hectic day for me!  Hope you are all more prepared for Christmas than I am :)

My card will be entered in the following challenges:
