Winter Snowman Banner

This is the project I mentioned in my post yesterday.  It is a snowflake "Winter" banner with snowmen!  The idea came to me as I was laying in bed trying to go to sleep a few days ago...that always seems to be the case.  I was so tired, but as soon as I started to think about the details, my mind just wouldn't shut off...
But I think it turned out so cute!
I cut everything out with my Cricut.  The snowmen on each letter are from the Snow Friends cartridge.  I love this cartridge!  Probably because I love snowmen :)
Banners aren't really something I make a lot of, but I wanted to try something new!  I also, for the first time, made rosettes!  Now those are fun!  They intimidated me when I first started seeing them around on projects.  I thought they would be difficult or I wouldn't have what I needed to make them stick together.  But wow...they were fun!  And so easy!
Instead of tying each snowflake together, I ran a single string of ribbon through rivets at the top and then added gems between the rivets to hold everything in place.  It added some bling without overtaking the whole banner!
Here's some up close pics:
