Caardvarks Hand Stitching Challenge

I just loved designing this card! I made the snowman without a pattern but rather cut two circles from my Cricut machine and just traced that on my felt. Then, I stitched all around both circles with an irridescent fiber, brown floss for the eyes, mouth, and to stitch the arms on, and then a cool blue Kreinik fiber for the nose and to sew on the buttons. I added a nice white organza ribbon and four little snowflake buttons to the corners. I distressed all of the edges with white paint that I also used to stamp "winter." I also glitterfied the area over "winter" for some sparkle. I mounted it all on a piece of Bazzill scallop paper.
