Snowman Trio

Hi everyone.  Today I'm playing along with Jingle Belles.  This challenge is all about "three of a kind".

I stamped my images in black, clear heat embossed, and then watercoloured with my zigs.  I die-cut a picture frame and added the cute snowmen in the three square boxes, and a die-cut sentiment from a leftover piece of watercoloured blue card stock, added to the top area of the frame.  The sentiment is coated a couple of times with clear wink of stella to add a little sparkle.

Here's a close-up ...

There's still a few days left before the challenge closes.  So if you have time, why not create a Christmas card with "three of a kind" and join the fun!
