Newton's Nook October Release Reveal Day #4

Happy Thursday and Welcome to Day #4 of the 
Holiday Release for October 2014

Today's stamp reveal is "Newton's Curious Christmas"

Up next is my favorite card of mine that I did for this week's reveal!
It all came together just the way I had planned:

I stamped the image onto white textured cardstock twice.
I colored Newton separately with a gray Le Plume marker and then
cut him out, except for the paws.

I colored in the snowman's scarf, nose, and bird with Le Plume Markers
and then used a scruffy brown ink pad to distress around the edges.

If you look closely, you can see a little sprinkling of clear glitter over part
of the snowman's side!
After cutting an oval shaped piece, I distressed the edge of it
with the same brown ink and then attached some ric rac trim.
Patterned papers are by Jillibean Soup and ribbon by Martha Stewart.

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
