Warm and Cozy Snowman

Wow!!  Here it is, the last day of November!  Where has this year gone!?!?  I'm so not ready for December!  Since it is the 5th Wednesday of November, we have a special challenge this week from The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes!!  I decided to create a fun, interactive card because I had this fun Swing Stamp Set that I hadn't gotten to use yet.  So, here is the outside:
 The sentiment reads "It's time to put on some Christmas cheer.  May your holidays . . ."
Then, instead of opening like a regular card, you pull up the tab to reveal . . .
 "be warm and wonderful" and the snowman has put on his hat and scarf!  Isn't this so cute??  I added clear wink of stella to the "snow" around each snowman.  So sparkly!!
I used this tutorial, if you want to check it out and see how it works.  I hope you will get a chance to play along with us amid the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season that is now upon us.

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Snowman, 2-sided Swing Stamp Set"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Ovals, large" and "A2 Matting Basics A" rectangles

Aud Sentiments #169--anything goes
Hanna & Friends #262--bingo--I used the dies, ribbon, glitter row
