Snowball Fight!

Good morning everyone I hope its cool wherever you are, its hot, hot, hot here! Well hot for us (me), lol, its suppose to be 32C today which is 90F, yuck! Sooo to keep cool I'm making Christmas cards this month, or at least trying too. Today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Stampin' Sisters in Christ and their challenge is to use at least 1 circle or oval element, use at least 2 different papers and use at least 1 embellishment. 
I have circles everywhere, three different papers and three embellishments, I used stickles, rhinestones and a ribbon.
I cut out and popped up the ants and snowball. I added silver stickles and next time I think it would look better with diamond stickles instead of silver.
Hop on over to Stampin' Sisters in Christ and give the challenge a try. If you use a Doodle Pantry image you can also enter Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #25. You can download a FREE Tiny Triceratops and enter the challenge!
