Some last minute commissioned Christmas cards

Here is the first of a last minute commissioned Christmas cards I was asked for.  I have used a Meljen's Designs image of a gorgeous snowman.  I have used up a scrap of backing paper I printed off onto pearlescent paper I have had for some years - but I can't remember what CD it is from now.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers, tore the edges and distressed with a red chalk ink pad.  The snowflakes I cut with my Cricut and added Stickles glitter glue for some shine and added white card candy to the centre.  The card is finished off with a Bizzy Becs ticket sentiment.
