Snow Fun with JAI 93

My daughter's girl scout troop leader asked me to design a holiday card for the girls to make at their party in December. I was really drawing a blank on this one for quite a while (at least a week), but today, while drinking my morning cup of coffee and looking at this week's color challenge for Just Add Ink, I thought - snowman! This is a fun and festive extra large card that the girls will have a great time assembling - I hope.

The dapper little man was sporting an orange "carrot" nose, but for some reason it just didn't look right, so I left it off and gave him a wry grin instead. The black hat clashed a bit with the color palette, so I added a narrow slice of the base blue to draw the eye up. And, I was so inspired, I made a smaller, simpler version for my card club members to make for our Great Christmas Card Challenge (Read: as many as we can make before Dec. 6th for the nursing home residents).

Thanks for looking!
