Snowman Season's Greetings

Hi, everyone!  I made this card a week ago and I'm finally getting a chance to post it here on my blog.  Again this year I am continuing my goal of making at least two holiday cards a month.  This is my fourth card for January so I have exceeded my goal!  I appreciate all of the challenges that provide inspiration to keep me going each month!  

This adorable snowman is from Beccy's Place.  He's called Snowy Snowflake, from the Snowfolk Set, which I believe has been retired.  I went with the precoloured version and fussy-cut so I could pop him up on foam tape.  The embossing folder was a Papercraft Essentials magazine freebie in 2016.  I adhered a sentiment from Beccy's Place Simply Christmas, which I fussy-cut and popped up on foam tape.  To finish the card I added three blue snowflake sequins.

I would like to join the following 10 challenges:

That's a great embossing folder KT, I love how you've used it as part of the scenery. I also like the addition of the little blue snowflakes... they're very pretty. Good on you for keeping up with your Christmas card goal, it will make things so much easier come December!
