{PIN}spirational Challenge # 38

Hello Friends!

I have two posts for you today so make sure you scroll down to see the second post.  

Well, you ask what the {PIN}spirational challenges are?  Each week the challenge is to look at a picture and make a creation inspired by the picture.  So this week the image is snowmen in a glass dish.  Ummmm, so many possibilities with this cute image!

The sponsor this week is Dilly Beans.

Dilly Beans was kind enough to share some digi images with us to create this week.  I picked the two snowmen with a birdhouse.  I colored them up with my copics and matted him using Spellbinders postage stamp die.  I am not sure who the background paper is by, it  was found in my stash. I added some perfect pearls and Tim Holtz distress ink around the image to add some color and texture.  The snowflake is cut out of a sizzix waffer thin die and I attached it with a little brad.  The card is actually a gate fold card and the snowflake is used to hold down the image and keep the card closed.

Copics used:
 Snowmen:  B60, W1, 0
Scarfs:  BG72, BG75, BG78
Hearts:  W5, R59
Birdseed:  E30, E31, E35
Bird House:  E71, E74, E77, W1, W3, W5
Hat:  W3, W5, W7
Noses:  YR12, YR15, YR18

The inside I used MME paper and cardstock.  I embossed the snowman using white embossing powder.  The snowman image is by Stampers Anonymous.   The sentiment is by Brother And Sister Designs.

Ok, it is your turn.  Take another look at the  picture and head over to {PIN}spirational Challenges to play along with us. 

 We will be taking a short break after this challenge, but will be back with more fun on January 8 with a new challenge!

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
