Feeling Kind of Flaky!

I'm not fond of winter in real life, but I love decorating my house with snowmen and crafting with all kinds of winter images. The first card uses the color challenge posted on Splitcoast, yesterday: mellow moss, kraft, & white.

Stamps: Snowflake Scroll (F875), Medium Filigree Snowflake (H1123), sentiment (D484)
Paper: mellow moss, kraft, white
Ink: mellow moss, craft white, close to cocoa
Accessories: ribbons, sponge, embossing powder
Techniques: The edges of the kraft panel were sponged with craft white.

This is Snowflake Snowman. I like to call him Mr. Flaky :) This isn't my normal color combination for snowmen, but I thought go bold and give it a try!

Does anyone else have difficulties stamping your sentiments the way you want them? It can be so frustrating! This time I stamped it straight, but it was off-center. I almost brought more cardstock out, but at the last second, I thought of adding this cute little snowflake in the corner. What do you think?

Stamps: Snowflake Snowman (M260), 4 in 1 Snowflakes (D096), sentiment (F229) - All DRS Designs
Paper: white, melon mambo, so saffron
Ink: black, melon mambo, Copic markers
Accessories: SU slit punch, eyelet, ribbon, dimensionals
