Peeking around

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a fun tic-tac-toe challenge for you:
No automatic alt text available.
What a fun board!!  And perfect for this time of year.  Specially if you are like me and haven't finished up all your Christmas cards, yet!  Sadly, it's true, but now I'm one more closer to being done.  As I have been doing with my last couple of cards, I looked through my bits and pieces stash to see what I had that would work.  I had a sketch in mind and discovered one of the white die cut circles in the stash which would be perfect.  I just cut two more to match.  I also had the green ribbon in the stash.  It's actually a really short piece but I cut it in half and pieced it behind the main panel and no one will ever know!  So, I used the Christmas/red & green/glitter column, but I also used gold or silver and heat embossing.
 I used gold tinsel embossing powder for my sentiment and it is really sparkly and a bit hard to capture in a photo.  Here is a different angle and you can see the gold glitter paper and the embossing powder sparkling like crazy.
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us.  Remember that you have all month to play along with each weekly challenge.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Snowman 2-sided Swing Stamp Set" I used the one snowman from the second side of the set and "Christmas"

Great card Heather and super use of snippets. These cute snowmen look like three different stamps - all down to how you placed them I guess - very clever card :)
