Black Cat Scraps-Snowman in the window, Card 5

 I love this card inside and out. I first when I had finished stamping the snowman I was a little unsure if I liked it on a not white back ground. Instead of changing it by either removing the front and putting it on a white card or adding in a white cardstock to the inside and re-stamp, I came up with adding white embossing powder to make it like those comics that only have some of the scene in the frame.

This card did not finish to be the design I had first started working on. However its inspiration, this card turned out great! My husband made the cutest comment about it..."Those look like real curtains" AND they do!
