Halloween Cat Wheelie Snowman Wheelie

Let's take a look at what Renee created today!

  Hello Ai fans!

I'm so excited to share one of the new Wheelie releases with you.

This is the Snowman Wheelie 5176.
He's part of the Wheelies series of stamps and dies.

I've made two cards for you.  The first one is a shaker card.  I wanted it to look like he was riding his bike through a winter wonderland in a snow-globe.

 I used 4804 – Snowflake Dies on both of my cards.
Since the current challenge is circles my globe and my rhinestones qualify for that.

I used very traditional colors on my first card so I went a little more whimsical with my colors on my second card.

On my second card I have two different kinds of circles...the rhinestones and I don't think you can actually see it in my photo but I embossed the front panel with circular snow.  I guess the wheels should count too.  He couldn't ride if his wheels weren't circles!

Copics used on shaker card...

G07, G12, Y08, R0000, R08, R46, R81,
W2, W4, 100, C00, C5,C7, T1, BV31

Copics used on pastel card...

R08, RV10, RV55, YG00, YG11, C00, C4, C6, W2,
BG0000, BG000, BG02 BG05, BG34
