Blue Christmas

I made this card using the delightful snowman from Penny Black stamps.  I coloured him with Promarkers and a little glitter.  The background is from The Next Big Thing cd by La Pashe.  I coloured the sky with a distress ink pad by Tim Holtz and also added glitter.  The background paper, mounted onto silver card is also from a La Pashe cd, not sure which one though.  I added some snowflakes to the end of a Memory Box die cut and a peel off (because it went so well with the card!!!)
