Sweet snowman

Good morning folks

Another Christmas card today -
I began by covering a 6 inch card blank with a white and red Christmas paper from my stash. I then cut a square using the outer 2 dies from Tonic's square base affections die set and a red Christmas paper from my stash.
The image is from Penny Black called Sweet snowman which I coloured with the following Promarkers - 
  • snowman - icicle, April shower, orange and mandarin
  • hat and scarf - berry red, ruby, crimson, bright green and forest green
  • present - berry red, ruby, crimson, bright green, forest green and gold
  • sky - pastel blue

I cut the image out with Tonic's layering squares and stamped a Penny Black sentiment in the corner. I attached it to the card base with foam pads.
I added some snowflakes cut using Spellbinder's create a flake 4 and some white card which I attached to the card with foam pads. To finish I added some silver gems to the centre of each snowflake.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - - August challenge - anything goes
