Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

I managed to find a few minutes in this busy holiday season to play a challenge, the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, check out the inspirational photo...

I tell you what inspired me before I show my card, here's the list :
* Blue and White (I've been in Christmas card mode so I couldn't envision the yellow in my design)
* The close clustering of the picture frames
* The idea of a party or gathering
* The textures (ie. fabric - translated into hats and scarfs for me) lol

Based on the above ideas, here is what I came up with:

And here is a close up of the party goers...

Nothing says winter like the colors blue and white! My snowman party is all clustered together like the frames in the picture, well somewhat like the frames :) This was a fun card to make and a little tedious...there was a LOT of masking involved to get all those snowman to fit together properly. I used Copic markers to color everything, I originally was going to paper piece the whole thing, but that would have taken forever!
