Stampin’ Up! Don’t Stop Believin’ Melting Snowman Card

I’ve always loved snowmen, so when I saw the melted snowman in the Don’t Stop Believ’ stamp set, I had to have it. When I saw the Sunday Stamps challenge for this week (SSC240 TIME TO GET SKETCHY), I immediately knew it was the perfect time to play with Frosty, from the Stampin’ Up! Don’t Stop Believin’ stamp set.

My card is inspired by the Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge — SSC240 TIME TO GET SKETCHY
