Salty Ocean Snowman

  I know it's only the beginning of the year but if I start now I might manage to make enough!! There are a number of very good challenge sites dedicated to Christmas cards, all with the aim of relieving the stress of mass production in November.
  This card uses backing paper from my stash, can't remember how old this one is! I've also used some stash Mirri card embossed with a snowflake folder that was free with a magazine and silver ribbon from the depths of my very untidy ribbon box.
  The main image is a little sample left over from the pre-Christmas demonstration flurry. The stamp is from Personal Impressions, he's stamped onto white card in Archival black and then masked off with another snowman stamped on a sticky note and cut out.
  The background is made using Distress Ink Salty Ocean, which is one of the new colours now available as a single pad, and some torn copy paper. The topper has been spritzed with water to get the snowflake effect before colouring the snowman's scarf so the colours didn't run. The scarf is coloured with Distress Markers.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
