Frosty the Snowman - Cute Daisy May DT Card, All that sparkles

It's time for a new challenge at Cute Daisy May and this week we want to see what you come up with for a 'Blue Christmas'

For my card I used this cute snowman, he has such a happy face I can't help loving him.
I coloured him with Copics and used flake (that is Flake and not a typo, not sure what it is really called as it was a pressie)glitter for his body, which gives him a real sparkly snow look IRL.
I then got a bit carried away and used Glitter Board for my matting and Layering and the snowflakes which I cut using my Spellbinders Snowflake die.
I used the Spellbinders snowflake embossing folder highlighted with Persian Sea Cosmic Shimmer Iridescent Mica Pigments, which gives a lovely effect when the light hits it.
I added some gems and a crystal for his nose, to complete my card. I used Sticky pads and silicone to attach my snowman to give the card some depth which you can sort of see here.

Linnie the creator of Cute Daisy May has got into the Christmas Spirit early and is giving away a sheet of four fabulous xmas images, so if you like this cutie Snowman you need to head on over to the Cute Daisy May Blog to grab yours now. The great thing about them are they are digital so you get to use them straight away no waiting for postmen strikes to finish and you can resize them to fit your project.

Dont forget to visit the rest of the DT's blog and check out their creations.
