HELP! I'M TRAPPED WITH MANIACAL GRINNING SNOWMEN!

I made this card for the sheer fun of it and maybe a challenge or three. I have been itching to use the plastic cups I got from SU and I finally had some time to make something.


I used this weeks MOJO MONDAY SKETCH for the layout.




The little penguin is a clear stamp that I picked up from the clearance rack at Walmart last year. He was the only stamp I had that was small enough to fit inside the plastic and as I looked at him when I was finished, I thought he looked truly frightened of those stupidly grinning snowmen.

I put some white flower soft in the container for snow which I think looks pretty cool.
Now, here is the surprising part. The entire background minus the circles was done digitally. Meaning the Pink, turquoise and striped part is all one layer put together in Photoshop and printed on a single sheet of paper. I love digi! I can not only try out my designs to see what goes together but I can be green as well. No wasted scraps or trashed cards because I didn't like the results! OK, hold on while I jump off my soap box.... there, I'm down.

These are the other challenges for which it was made.

Oh how cute! I love what you did with this layout! And I love working digitally too! Although, I only use digital images, and not paper.
