Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #18

Hi Everyone!!
It's time for a new Whimsy Inspiration Challenge!
This weeks theme is "Patterns and Pearls!"  Use your yummy pattern papers, and blingy pretty pearls, and create something gorgeous for us!

You don't have to use a Whimsy image, but it would be great if you did! And it doesn't have to be a card - we welcome all paper projects. Don't forget to check out the challenge details - and your chance to be a Guest Designer with us - over at the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge Blog!

I decided to use the totally adorable new "Snowman Skating" from Crissy Armstrong, available from the fabulous Whimsy Stamps Store. All the new snowmen this month are just SOOOO cute!!

I followed the "Sketch 'n' Stash" #76. I wanted to change the colours of my snowman a bit from the usual, so chose purple, green and red, which went perfectly together with some pattern trimmings from my now well-used Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather 6x6 pad. And of course the Pearls to finish the Challenge with!

Hope you like my card!

And another angle...
