Do Snowmen Make You Smile?



This card makes me smile! 
There's something about a big, jolly looking snowman 
with a smile that just makes me 
happy.


I found this snowman as a free coloring page for kids somewhere
on the internet (sorry, don't remember where).
As soon as I saw him I thought he'd be perfect on a card.

I used my blendabilities to color him in, some sparkly 
embossing powder to create the snow and a few sequins for
falling snow. The striped paper and
the banner greeting (sorry it's a little hard to see) remind me
of the sign at the North Pole - you know the one - it's in 
all the movies and children's books.

Sorry the photo is a little dark - time for a new system.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland - Frosty the Snowman
Crafty Calendar Challenge - It's All About Christmas

embossing powder and/or flocking
Creative Corner Challenges - any Christmas card
