Birdbrain Snowman

Good morning; hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season!  It was nice to have a break during the holidays to spend time with family and friends, but I am glad to be back to day with a new sketch from From the Heart Stamps.  Not only do we have a sketch, but also a twist (use textured paper) and an inspiration photo.  So many choices!  Check them out:

I love the sketch; I made a square card because it better suited the image Birdbrain Snowman.  I couldn't resist coloring the snowman a reddish hue because it reminded me a bit of Angry Birds!  LOL  I've colored the image with pencils and accented it with glitter.  For the "texture" component, I've used Bazzill Bling which also has a great pearlescent shimmer.  I've embellished simply with a layered snowflake.
