Mabelle RO: Snowball Boy

Happy Monday,

Mabelle re-released her Fall and Winter digis a few weeks ago.  This is Snowball Boy.  I fell in love with him last year, but it has taken me this long to use him.  I know it is only September, but after such hot summer and the cooler temps moving in now you can smell Fall in the air.  The snow will be flying soon enough here in Wisconsin.
This is a super simple card.  I found my DCWV Christmas Stack from several years ago and there was this wonderful snow fall background paper.  I used my Nestabilties Grand Circle die for the background and Grand Scalloped Circle die for the base card.

I colored him simply, then added some "sparkly fluff" for the snow on the ground and snowball.
