I wanted to try a window card and incorporate my favorite
MS branch punch, so.....this is the result!
I have a male friend with a December birthday,
 and I think this will be a fit for that occasion.

The finished card measures approx. 5 x 6" and is embossed w/ the CB snowflake folder.
The circle cut-out is 4" and lined w/ individual branches.
The edges are rounded, accented w/ the same punch,
and then finished off w/ a button.
A lime green glitter ribbon made into a bow puts the finishing touches to the card front.

The inside is matted twice.
The snowman is made from a resized oval from PS.
The edges were inked w/ light blue,
and the face is a Peachy Keen stamp (I just love them!)
that has been colored w/ pencils.

The hat comes from WW and has been resized in DS to fit the snowman head.
It was cut in shadow and regular, was embossed w/ the CB swirls
and swiss dots folder, and was accented w/ 4 small green gems for holiday bling!
The stars are a left-over from another project and I think they are cut from WC.

I will add a "Happy Brrrrrthday" sentiment along the sides of circle cut-out
and a personal message on the back.
I like the finished project, but I think I will downsize the snowman a bit
on my next card and make the circle window on the front smaller.
