Warm Winter Comforts (Unity Stamp)

Hello, everyone!  I'm back again today to share a card I made for the Unity Stamp Company's [be INSPIRED] colour challenge.  It ends today so I am cutting it close! This is the first time I've played over there and they have an awesome prize! And the winner even gets to hop with the DT for the next [be INSPIRED] challenge! How fun - I would love to do  this!

For my card I used Unity's Itty Bitty Warm Winter Comforts set, which comes with the little snowman scene and sentiment. I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils and inked the edges with Distress Ink.  I added white Flower Soft on the snowman's cap and Icicle Stickles along the snow.

Although I have a Polaroid die cut, I didn't use it here - I made my own!  Then I tried to be trendy by adding the gold thread behind the Polaroid.  The dp is from Lawn Fawn's new Snow Day 6x6 pad (which I won in a blog giveaway, thank you!) and I added stitching along the sides.

I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black and added a few sequins so I could play along in the sequin challenge at My Craft Spot. Here's the Unity Challenge colour palette I followed:

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Snow UE
My Craft Spot Sequins 1E C5
Open Minded Crafting Fun Fowl of All Kinds 2/3
RANDOM WINNER Winter Wonderland Frosty the Snowman 1/3

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

P.S. I'm celebrating 200 followers with candy!  Help me celebrate! My candy is here.
