Mr Snowman

I have a Christmas card to share today featuring a cute Lili of the Valley stamp called 'Mr Snowman'. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added a touch of gold to the baubles hanging from his arms using a gel pen. I added a sentiment (from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous), then used one of my Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside' border dies to cut a curve along one side. I added strips of gold washi tape along the edges of my card blank, then added the snowman panel on top using 3D foam tape.
