Christmas Challenge (with sketches) #6

Gosh it can't be that time again already can it - at this rate it'll soon be Christmas! We're loving seeing your takes on our sketches over at CCWS and this week it's Claire's turn to provide the sketch. We are being sponsored by Hobbystempels. Here is my card:

Image is from Cuddly Buddly's Patchwork Snowman (had for several years) and has been coloured with promarkers, cut out and mounted with silicon gel onto a nestie oval (dusted with pearlescent chalk) and scalloped oval. Backing paper is from a Christmas from around the world download as is the large snowflake and the corners. The white squares have been cut and embossed with a folder from Marianne Designs. Card is finished with stars, snowflakes, gems, buttons, a bow, a bead from a cracker and a ticket sentiment.

Please pop over to CCWS to see the sketch and find out what delights the rest of the Design Team have created, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
