Snowman angel king

I was stamping at my friend Chris's house, playing making Christmas cards, and I colored this little snowman angel. The Angel Company likes to make angel stamps, go figure (the word "angel" refers to the Terms of Use, not the religious inclinations of the owners). Anyway, after I colored the crown and wings gold (white wings on a white snowman on a white background was a little too much white for me), I realized that there was no gold in any of the papers and accents we were offered to use. I politely asked to start over, but Chris agreed only on the stipulation that I take my golden snowman angel home and make him into a card. I agreed, and this is the card I made at Chris's house.

As you can see, I stayed close to the colors in the papers (Merry Wishes) with this one. I used stickles for the wings, star, and snow - it's a pretty glittery card.

After I got home, I looked through all my Christmas patterned papers, and couldn't find one with bright enough colors that wouldn't overshadow the little snow king. I expanded my search and found a perfect, although unlikely match:

I think it makes a cute card, even if the colors aren't traditional. I wonder if Chris will laugh when she sees this - Frutti Fusion papers are usually thought of as summer papers. The alphas are sequins.

As it happens, Merry Wishes and Frutti Fusion paper packets are both half price right now, along with some of my other favorites. This is a good time to stock up.
