Spotty Snowy

I'm not usually one for paper piecing..it's all the fiddly cutting out that usually puts me off! But, I thought I'd giive it a go for this week's Less is More challenge. Inspired by this gorgeous card by my lovely friend Samantha, I inked up my Penny Black 'Snowy' stamp, and set about giving him a spotty hat and scarf set using some scraps of Bo Bunny 'Tis the Season' paper - so cute! I added some Glossy Accents to his nose, and some Stickles to the snow, then some candy cane striped twine.
