Dressing the Snowman

Hi everybody

There is a lovely sketch by Bev over at the Lili of the Valley challenge this week, and I decided to follow it and enter this card using the Build a Snowman stamp.

Mr papers are Prima North Country - just love the colours and non-traditional patterns of these.   I have coloured with Copics and added a fair amount of stickles for the fur and snow.  I have used seam binding and a poinsetta from stash, and also a snowflake cut with my new Memory Box die.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Come and Get It - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut - for someone special
