The Perfect Snowman

I made this card for one of my young nephews and am entering the Cardz 4 Guys 'Snowman' challenge.  I'm also entering Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Cute', Sparkles Monthly Challenge 'Christmas is Coming' and Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes'.  The card and paper are from my snippets drawer, so I'm also heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'The Perfect Snowman' Mini Masterpiece
Die: Cheery Lynn Designs 'Snowflake Set 2'
Other: Clear gem, Stampendous Fun Flock, Diamond Stickles, Wink of Stella
Snippets: Blue matt card, silver mirri, blue snowflake paper

I trimmed blue snowflake paper, layered it onto blue card and attached it to the card front.  The pre-coloured image was originally a square, so I trimmed it to a rectangle, layered it onto blue card and attached it to the centre of the paper. I die cut a snowflake, attached it to the corner of the image and added a clear gem to the centre.  To finish, I highlighted the snow with Diamond Stickles, the image with a Wink of Stella and added Fun Flock to the hat bobble.

This is a fun and pretty image Kath and the snowflake background with the added silver snowflake works beautifully, and I love the flower soft on the bobble. x
