Best friends

   My card for this weeks challenge at QKR Stampede is making use of paper scraps. Not having enough of either the red or green paper I cut them into squares and attached the pieces to blue card which I matted onto white. The image called best friends was coloured using Promarkers and a little loose glitter was added to the snowman. The image was then matted onto black card and I added a greeting cut from black card using Tattered Lace dies.
