Cheer Up! It's Paper Romance Challenge Day!

It's Ria's Challenge Day over at Paper Romance and she has challenged us to make a card with a Winter theme.  I love this little snowman.  He is so cheery and dapper with his umbrella! Must be why he is called Dapper Dan Snowman!

I stamped my image from High Hopes (available at Paper Romance here) on watercolor paper with Charcoal VersaColor ink and then embossed with Midnight Madness Embossing Powder.  This fun designer paper is a super holiday collection from K & Co. called  I love all the different papers it has for every holiday!

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check out the Paper Romance Challenge blog to see what some of the other PR gals have done with winter!  Play along and you might win a PR gift certificate!

    What a fun combo of papers! I can see why it is a "Paper Romance" challenge! Look at all of the paper to love!

    I love the strip through the center with the paper piercing! It is very eye catching! It is as if it is a line leading you to that beautifully colored Dapper Snowman!
