Dynamic Duos #29

Good Saturday morning everyone and welcome to another great challege from Dynamic Duos!  This weeks challenge uses Black and Marina Mist with a dessert option to add a snowman. 
 Believe it or not, I don't own any snowman stamps.  There have been many I've looked at at loved but never purchased!  I was surprised when I looked through my stash and didn't find one.  So, I used the very thing snowmen are made from....snowflakes!  How's that for a stretch!  I started out with the negative space snowflake from a previously cut piece of silver glimmer paper.  I hate to throw away any of that glimmer paper because you never know when your gonna need a scrap.  I think this worked well, after I mounted it on a black piece I cut with my spellbinders die.  I layered on another snowflake, from the retired Northern Frost decorative strip die, and then added the whole thing to a white scalloped square.  I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #171 for my sketch inspiration. 
I grabbed a peice of retired To The Nines designer paper, and added a strip of black that I ran through my snowflake embossing folder, and voila'...I had my backround!  I love that DP.  I bought a bunch of it when it retired and have used it lots and lots! 
 The next thing I did was add the banner behind the main image panel.  I started off with just plain Marina Mist, then added a little piece of more silver glimmer.  I went back and forth trying to decide if I should keep the silver piece before finally calling myself crazy for even considering not adding it!  I love glitter...I can't believe I even doubted adding it!
Lastly, I added the tiny Merry tag and an antique faceted button strung with some silver cord.  I hope you like it!  Check out what the other designers have come up with....everyone is sooooo talented and they are sure to provide you with ample inspiration!
