Sparkling Snowman Card

Good Evening!
Tonight I want to share another Christmas card with you. I have made a snowman card with lots of glitter and sparkle goodness. Its also an easel card. I am in love with this style but am anxious to try a criss-cross card; very soon! But, I digress, lol. Back to tonight's card. I made this card in my favourite Christmas colour combination - blue and silver :). My Christmas ornaments are all in these colours with a few pink ornaments thrown in.
There are 2 challenges running this week that just went hand in hand together so this card is being submitted to:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - June Theme "Snowman"

The Squirrel and The Fox - Challenge #20 Make It Sparkle
Papertake Weekly - Bingo (ribbon, gems & punches)

Supplies I Used:
Cardstock - Recollections
Patterned Paper - DCWV
"Snow Friends" stamp set - CTMH
Punches - Martha Stewart "Aspen Snowflake" PATP and Paper Shapers "Snowflake" punch
Silver Ribbon - Offray
Rhinestones - Michael's
"Moonstruck" (blue) ink - CTMH
For the silver snowflakes, I punched them from Bee Creative 2-sided tape sheets and attached them to snowflakes punched from cardstock. I then covered them with "Silver" Glitter Ritz and added the blue rhinestone.
The falling snowflakes are made with glue and Glamour Dust. I also added Glamour Dust all around the outside edge of my snowman and the outer edge of my sentiment.
The snow on either side of my snowman was made with Flower Soft.
My snowman was coloured with the following Copics: B02, R24, R29 & YR07.

That is my post for today. Thanks so much for stopping by to look at my card. Leave a comment for me and I will comment back; follow me and I will follow you too! I am off the have a look at some of your cards now :)
