Christmas shapes

So the challenge on Everybody Art Challenge  today is for Shapes and the round card was on my desk. It was made testing out that the Gypsy works and when I found out what the challenge is to be I decided to use it.
I have issues with round cards, I have a habit of making one side heavy and it tips ups.
So I had a plan, you can see that my PB snowman is level with the bottom of card and so is one of the trees and it works a treat no roly poly card.
The patterned paper is Basic Grey and the picket fence border is a MS punch and although you can't see it very well but the bottom are few layers of card. I've also used flower soft and fun flock for his bobble on his hat.
I do love it when something turns out better than you thought it would.
Now don't forget to check out the DT and I'll be back later with my High Hopes card.
