Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Use a Sketch

This week at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long, we're asking you to:

 'Use a sketch' 
Pick a sketch from one of your favourite sketch challenges...simples!

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

New Badge

(Not sure what the prize is at the time of writing, so I'll update this when I find out.)

The DT were all given Limited Runs Digital images to play with...I've used 'Snowman #1', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I picked a sketch from Christmas Challenges {with sketches}.The papers are from the 'Blitzen' pad by Bo Bunny...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment is a Penny Black stamp, and the snowflake was cut using my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.
