CD 369 - Snowman Squares

Welcome to this week's Colour Dare Challenge!

We have another tic-tac-toe board - this time using the colours from the Holly Jolly paper pack...

I used all the colours except Toffee and Espresso - so the 2 left columns and the middle row. 

The adorable snowman from the Whimsical Holiday stamp set has stolen my heart and I wanted to use that image. I random stamped the white background with 3 snowflakes and then added Silver Stickles to the centre of each snowflake. The Holly Jolly paper pack was used to create the small squares along with 2 colours of cardstock. I don't distress the edges of my paper very often but I did with each of the papers this time as it added definition to them. 
The snowman was stamped, coloured and fussy cut. I also brushed him with the Clear Shimmer Brush and used the Black Shimmer Brush on the buttons. Faux stitching was added between the squares. I love how this turned out!

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the tic-tac-toe grid shown above.

Don't see you use a square card very often. Nice distribution of the squares and the distressing looks great which creates frames against your personalized snowflake background. Great job.
