The Stamping Boutique DT Post - Christmas in June?

Well I decided long ago that I needed to start making Christmas cards earlier in the year so that I'm less stressed come Christmas time!  Today's post is the first Christmas card I've made in a while so I better get busy!  Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE SNOWMEN!  When I first saw this image "Snowman Scrapbook Journal" at The Stamping Boutique I knew I had to have him!
I coloured him with copics and then used a rub-on sentiment for his sign by Little Yellow Bicycle.  I used glossy accents on the sign (I LOVE THIS STUFF) and added a few rhinestones for some bling!  The DP is also from Little Yellow Bicyle & the cardstock is Bazill.  I embossed using a snowflake embossing folder with my cuttlebug and the ribbon I've had in my stash forever so it was really great to finally use it!  I used the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges #43 and will also be entering it into the challenge over at Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenges where we are asked to make a card based on your favourite Christmas Song.  Mine is Frosty the Snowman, of course :)
