HDH068 Octopodally Ominous... by Barb

Have you totally just had a heart attack from seeing a post with an HDH068 challenge card done by me?!  I know!  Cah-raaa-zy.  And the crazier part is that I'll be back in a day or two with a SECOND one... yeah... I know... un-effing believable.  :)

Since the winter holidays are JUST around the corner, how apropos is this?!  I seriously fell in LOVE with this little snowman... it's a bit warped and twisted... sooooooo up my alley :)
I should probably do my 8-item breakdown that was part of the challenge:
1:  card base, 2:  blue-grey panel, 3:  sentiment, 4:  webby trim, 5:  snowman, 6:  straight ribbon, 7:  separate bow, 8:  snowflake gem

How do you like how grungy this guy is?  It kinda looks like he was made from that snow along the street that has all of the dirt & grime thrown over it, no?  All misshapen and a little sad.  That's why I thought the sentiment was particularly fitting :)

 Digi:  Whimsical Snowman (Octopode Factory)
Rubber stamp:  retired TAC sentiment
Paper:  Caboodle White & scarlet cardstocks (TAC), blue-grey cardstock (Bazzill)
Ink:  VersaFine Onyx
Other:  ribbon & trim (May Arts), gem (JoAnn's)
Copics:  0, BV20, BV23, C00, C3, C5, C7, E57, E59, G21, G24, G28, R35, R37, R59

How are YOUR challenge cards coming along?  :)
