Totally Papercrafts Challenge

It's Friday and it's time for another challenge over at Totally Papercrafts.  This time it's Cathy's turn to pick the challenge. And she has gone for....

White on White

This week's fabulous sponsor is

Simon Says Stamp

(Please remember that this does not include any postage and packaging charges that may apply)

And so here is my card for today - and yes, it's a Christmas card ;) so that'll be two I've made so far this year..... Made this last week at the Crafty Cabin. Cass suggested the colour for his hat and scarf and then said "oh, black and red are the most difficult colours to get right".... Mmmmm. Anyway, I think Frosty (no idea if that's his name) looks ok - sparkly and jolly just like a snowman should be.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

ABC Christmas Challenge - I for Icy Inspiration
Christmas Card Challenges - Punches
Lili's Little Fairies - Anything Goes
Christmas Cards All Year Long - Inspired by a Song (Frosty the Snowman)
Oldie But A Goodie - Die Cuts and Punches - snowman stamp has been lying about unloved for many a long month (may even be years). Poor Frosty.

No new products were harmed in the making of this card! Use It Up 2012. 

Image - Snowman and sentiment, LotV, coloured with Copics 
Cardstock/Paper -  from stash
Embellishments - Card Candy, Craftwork Cards
