Bugaboo Snowman Bird House

Good morning! What a great Christmas in July week at Catch the Bug we had with gorgeous projects from everyone! I hope you enjoyed the challenges. I'm continuing the Christmas cards with today's theme which is a colour challenge.

I know the colours look like they should be for summer but they work great for a winter card too!

I used Bugaboo's Snowman Bird House and layered the hat, scarf, arm and roof.  Its hard to see in the photo but there are stickles in the middle of all the snowflakes. Take a look at what the other DT created and then have some fun stamping, you could win fantastic stamps!
