"Winter Wonderland"

Thanks to Rhonda Van Ginkel Again for sharing with us this darling gift bag!
Happy New Year greetings to all of my crafty friends!
It's time for a new monthly challenge over at Imaginisce!  This one was a slam dunk for me as living in the climate here in Minnesota is all about this!
"Winter Wonderland"
My interpretation for this challenge:
The inspiration for my gift bag was the snowman, or as I refer to him, Frosty.  I knew I wanted to create Frosty, pieced from the various sizes of our i-Top punches.  Once I layered the punches from the i-Top punches in various sizes, I felt the centers of each layer really needed some depth.  I used the all new  i-Top 2.0, XL, L and M sizes for my brads.
Some cardboard dry brushed with pearl white paint made my backdrop and as I had leftover paint, I dry brushed it onto Frosty as well, that worked out spendidly!  His face is a Peachy Keen New Years face.
As you can probably guess, the Bon Voyage collection is what was used for its vintage timeless flavor.  Oh, and Frosty's hat, that's a canvas car sticker from the collection!  The snow on the edges of the cardboard is a Viva Decor pearl pen.  I've stamped using Versamark, A Jillian Vance Design snowflake stamps and sentiment and some Fairy Dust Glitter onto the postcard.  The arms are stick pins by Maya Road.  Snowflakes are Martha Stewart punches.
Of course, my handy i-Rock was used to add some snowflake glitter and crystal sparkle as well.
One more picture to show a bit of the texture.
I hope you are inspired to play along with us and share your own interpretation of "Winter Wonderland" at Imaginisce!  We can't wait to see what you do!!!
Have a super scrappity day!
~ Rhonda
