Freshly Made Sketches: Oh What Fun

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Cécile and here’s what I did with it!

9.15.21 FMS side

I thoroughly enjoyed working on this card.  I had the snowman idea right away, but I was thinking of an elegant, open-style snowman that I thought I had with beautiful snowy papers behind him.  It turns out my mental image of that particular snowman was wrong. So I flipped through the other snowmen that I had and this guy just kept saying "Pick me! Pick me!" and I'm so glad I did.  I found some cheerful papers and smiled the entire time that I was working!

I used some soft fluffy paper in the hat and then some glitter paper for the snowflake. I struggled with the sentiment a bit because "oh what fun" fit size-wise but I kept singing " a one-horse open sleigh" and there's no sleigh here and that bothers my obsessive side.  But there is "fun" here so I stuck with it. 

I hope to see you playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
