Let it snow at Christmas

Good afternoon friends,
Well nothing is further from my mind than snow, but for challenge #3 at The 12 months of Christmas I needed a card with snow, so this is what I have made.

 
I used red cardstock and matted some patterned paper with snowflakes onto that.
The image is Sammie Snowman from Lexi's Creations. I think she might have closed down. Coloured with Distress inkpads added some texture to the hat and lots of glitter.
Cut a star diecut and embossed it with a snowflake embossing folder. Sanded the embossing slightly and again added some glitter.
Added 3 diecut snowflakes with...you guessed it...glitter.
 
Will enter this in some challenges:
 
Whimsey Stamps #81...Use a diecut
Wonderful Wednesday...Anything goes
Scrapper's Delight #43...Anything goes
 Crafting from the Heart #51...Anything goes
Jingle Belles ...Embossing
Pile it on challenge #60...use 3 of anything. (3 snowflakes)
Aud Sentiments # ///use a 2 word sentiment
 Love to Scrap #50...Anything goes
 
Have a great day and as the week is now going downhill, I hope you all enjoy and have fun. Take care and see you soon.
Love Ursula
