Snow special.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Don`t faint but I am back with another card, I have been asked to make some for a lady and this is one of them.
Unfortunately my own Christmas cards will have to be shop brought this year, time  has not been on my side.
Anyhoo enough of my waffle and on to my card which I am also entering into the following challenges:
1.Inky Chicks Challenge - 60 - Merry Christmas
2.Creative Ladybirds Challenge - 10 - Anything goes
3.Scrap & Craft Challenge - 16 - Anything Christmas
4.As You Like It Challenge - Fav masculine or feminine and why easy one this time ladies, I love to make masculine cards but my fav is to make feminine cards because I find them easier to embellish and you can really go overboard with all the yummy trims and flowers and pearls.
5.Little Miss Muffet Challenge - 126 - Anything goes
6.Southern Girls Challenge - Use something you love - I love this rubber stamp and also the sparkly snowflakes which were a bargain find last year.
7.Creative Fingers Challenge - 99 - Anything goes
8.Pile It On Challenge - 98 - Anything Christmas/Winter
10.Sweet Stampin Challenge - Snow time

Products used are:
White pearl card
Papers - old ones from stash
Distress tool
Stickles stardust
Stampendous snowman stamp

A close up of the snowman, I have paper pieced the hat and scarf

And a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by.
Hugs  Nic.
