Telescoping Snowman #4 - Folk Art Colors!

I finally finished my fourth telescoping snowman card for my fourth offspring.  Now, I do have to decided who gets which one, but I think I already have a pretty good idea.  I did decide to do #4 with folk art colors, and I found a piece of  Kaisercraft Christmas paper that had small squares of all the papers in the St. Nicholas collection.  It was perfect for this project.  I paired it with Stampin' Up's Old Olive for my cardbase and a mat layer of Red Glimmer to place my squares on.  My hardest job was finding a pattern I like for the middle body circle.  Don't why that was so difficult, but I had my heart set on the Peace, LOVE, and Joy label from the same Kaisercraft St. Nicholas collection, and I needed something to contrast but look like it belonged together.  I finally selected a Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium ivy paper.  I am actually happier with the final design than I thought I would be, and now it's time to share with you!
