Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 14 - Snowflakes

Hi!  How appropriate is this week's Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge as I think large chunks of the UK are currently shivering under a blanket of snow! 

Is it just me but it doesn't normally snow this much this early in the year??

I was wanting to use some shrink plastic snowflakes for this challenge, but I can't find my opaque shrink plastic - and I tried using white (which you'd have thought would be OK) but didn't like them, they looked too solid somehow, so gave up and cut some out on the cricut.  Mission for this week - find the Shrink Plastic I just KNOW I have!!  Anyway, this is what I came up with...

The rather happy snowman is Snowman with Scarf from the new release of Digi Downloads from Scrapbook Sisters.  The new range includes more from Gayle Bond and also from Sally West.  If you haven't seen these downloads yet, I hope you have chance to have a look - prices are from 99p and there is no minimum order value

This image is fab to colour as Gayle has managed to indicate where the shade should be without making the image is too prescriptive - nice one Gayle!!

I've added some glamour dust to his hat and glossy accents to his carrot nose and coal eyes, nose and buttons

Hope you like it
