Completely Christmas 40

For Completely Christmas 40 the theme is 'anything goes with a twist ... something beginning with S'. Please click on the link to see what the other design team members have come up with - and we hope you will join in the challenge.

I decided to feature a Snowman, so I used Paper Pretties 'warm winter wishes', kindly given by the sponsor of the challenge, colouring with spectrum noir pens and matting on to various die cuts. - so this is also for Paper Pretties 338: snow much fun.

nPapers are Echo park 'winter wishes'.
