Mixing Cricut & scrapNfonts for a Season's Greetings in a Winter Wonderland!

Hey there, this past week's challenge over at Bitten by the Bug was to use the card cut from Christmas Cheer as a blank canvas and incorporate some amazing doodlebats and fonts from scrapNfonts. We were asked to use a doodlebat from DB 'Tis the Season Modern and the font SNF Classy Charm (very classy!). I chose to use the Season's Greetings round tag, which is character "M" from DB 'Tis the Season Modern and also the cutest Snowman (character "Q") from DB Snowy Doodles. You should see what the other design team members did with this challenge, go on over to BBTB and see!

Here's mine:

I love this font SNF Classy Charm...you'll be noticing it more in my future projects...
