Peace, Love, and Joy Snowman

Hello, everyone!  I have another holiday card to share.  This whole month I am joining Beccy's 9th Annual Month of Holiday Cards as often as I can.  Each day Beccy provides an inspiration card along with an alphabet prompt (or some other challenge) to inspire us to make our holiday cards - thank you, Beccy! 

As for Beccy's alphabet prompts, I'm jumping ahead to S for Snowman and Snowflakes. My card features Snowman Circle from Eureka Stamps at Stamp On It, which I coloured with markers, die-cut with a dotted circle, and then mounted on a red dotted circle.  The sentiment is a clear stamp (Simon Says Stamp Christmas Word Mix 1) which I die-cut with the coordinating die.  The snowman and sentiment are both popped up on foam tape.  The patterned paper is a scrap from BoBunny Mistletoe Collection, and I finished the card by adhering three die-cut snowflakes (Poppystamps Frosty Snowflake Buttons; I kept the button holes intact).

My card design was inspired by Sketch Saturday Week 684, which is "Pick from the Archive."  I chose Sketch 523:  

I would also like to join the following challenges:

Great take on the sketch Kitty, love the papers and card stock you chose, they're very festive. The snowman image is adorable, I really like how the wreath and little cardinal stand out against the black and white. Great job!
