Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #54 (Snowman Theme) and another Online Pattern Paper Card

I am learning people!  Of course, I pull  out about 5 or 6 different pattern papers and even cut them before deciding what really looks good...I told you I struggle with this!  Will it ever get easier?  I don't know but it sure feels good to be using this pattern paper that just sits in a box!  So the inspiration sketch comes from the Online Card Class Pattern Papers.  And once again I used a cute snowman to enter this card into the Merry Monday Snowman theme card challenge as well.  I figure I might as well kill two birds with one stone so to speak!  Note to self:  buy more twine...particularly RED!
 


paper:  PTI pure poppy, PTI Christmas Prints pattern pack, white
stamps:  Tiny Treats:Christmas, Tag Its # 8
memento marker,  copics, May Arts jute, white uni ball pen for dashes, pure poppy ink

  6. You are your own worst critic! I think your card looks perfectly put together & the result is gorgeous :) Pattern paper is my nemesis, you won't find much of it on my blog....hopefully the OCC will change that x
