Snowman Thanks

I based this card off OWH Sketch #37.   If you try the sketch yourself, please note that the vertical strip is marked 2.5" wide but I found that it looked better much narrower (as it's pictured in the sketch), so I changed it to 1.25" wide. 

This was one of those cards where I got 80% finished and couldn't figure out what to do to finish the card.  I picked the papers, cut the background and strips, stamped the sentiment, and could not decide on an image.  I finally found this snowman from Unity that I'd never inked up.  It was part of a grab bag that I got in the spring so I don't know what it's called. 

I used random supplies from my stash to make 18 kits of this card for my party.  That brings my total to 201 including my samples.  I actually have 18 different designs ready, too! 

Papers: K&Co (floral), Fiskars (pink vines), Making Memories (blue), stash (ivory)
Punch: Tonic
Stamps: Unity (snowman- unknown name), Heidi Swapp (thank you)
Coloring: Copics
Sketch: OWH #37
