Little Snowy

...and I'm back to Christmas cards! This time I've used a cute snowman from an older Penny Black set ('Jolly Friends'), which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding some sparkle to the snowy ground with some Stickles. The papers are from the 'Bundled Up' pad by Crate Paper...I distressed the edges, then added some faux stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The snowflake was cut using a Memory Box die, the gem brad is from Craft Obsessions and the little pearls are by Papermania.
