It's Challenge Time Again!

Ok, so I think I caught the challenge bug this time--and that is a bug I am willing to suffer with for a while!  ;)  I made this adorable little snowflake card for a couple of different challenges.  The first is the Peachy Keen Challenge!  I discovered Peachy Keen stamps a while back when I first started to go gaga over my cricut.  They make lots of little face stamps to decorate your cricut cuts with.  LOVE them!  Also, I am linking up to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for the first time ever!  The theme this week is "Snow Much Fun" and this card sure fits! 



What do you think?  I know this little guy sure melts MY heart.  Maybe it's the sparkle that got to me.  ;)



The background paper is made with my BRAND NEW embossing folder.  I was so excited to get it!  Love the x's and o's!  I strategically placed shimmer trim throughout the snowflake to light up his face.  The face is stamped with pieces from PK-943 Funshine Face Parts that fit 3-4 inch paper dolls or other cuts with a 7/8 to 1 3/8 diameter.  The snowflakes are both cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection from Close to My Heart.  The larger one is cut at 3.5 inches and the top layer is cut at 2.5 inches.  I colored the cheeks in with our Blush Alcohol Ink Marker.  The cute little tag is also from the same cricut cartridge and cut at 1.75 inches.
