Snowmen Fall From Heaven Unassembled

This is my second post as a guest designer on the Firecracker Designs digi team. I loved this image as soon as I saw it. It was a breeze to color and so easy to use. It is also nestie compatible, although I hand cut my image and mat.

I broke out my brand new October Afternoon holiday papers and my favorite trim. (I found some more at a local crafting store and bought the last little bit they had.) I used up some old snowflake eyelets that have been in my stash forever. I don't know where I got them or who made them. Both layers of DP were dry embossed to add a little texture.

You can keep track of what is going on with Fire Cracker Designs on Pamela's blog or by visiting the store. You can see the Child of Winter digi I used along with the rest of the series HERE in the store. Did you know that Pamela offers a free digi most week ends? The one from last week end is a wonderful autumn digi. Download it before it is moved into the shop.

Thank you for looking!
