New Years?

Hi everyone! Well, it's Monday. Are you ready to take on the week? :)

It's the Picture Perfect week over at Paper Smooches SPARKS.

Here's the inspiration picture:

When I first saw the image, I wasn't quite sure what to do. I don't have a Paper Smooches jar or butterfly. The jar reminded me of water, which reminded me of ice, which reminded me of snowmen...

Or maybe I was just thinking about wine. ;) I paper pieced and colored one of the snowmen from Freezy Fellas. I stamped one of the arms before fussy cutting the image. For the wine, I die-cut a Free Spirit Icons glass and stamped the images from the Free Spirits set. The sentiment is from the same set.

I added a little heart from Hullabaloo to look like one of the butterflies. Here's a close-up:
