BONUS CHALLENGE!!! Shopping our Stash is joining the Jingle Belles.......

Again this year Shopping Our Stash is joining the Jingle Belles for a Winter challenge.  Your project must use items that are at least a year old and tell us what it is.  I was so excited about the challenge I brought many, many sets of stamps and digi images to the cottage to work on them (I thought I needed two) it helps to read closely when checking challenges out. I finally decided on a digi image I got last  year from Sassy Studios, it is Olaf from Frozen, I showed the finished image to hubby and he thought is was a ghost from Casper,  On to more of the challenge...,this is a "twofer" you can put your finished project on both challenge blogs, that's double chances to win,

I made a side step card, this is the first time I have made this by myself and I didn't mess up any cardstock....bonus. The snowflakes are from Stampin'up they also have a die to cut them with and it's the first time they have been used and they are over a year old.  the sentiment came with the super cute image. His buttons I made with  gluing 3 punched circles together and covering them with crystal effects, tiny rhinestones were used for the centers of the snowflakes and a touch of stickles, hope it shows up.

I fussy cut Olaf and popped him up
