Aud Sentiments Challenge #34 - Merry Christmas

Another fortnight has blown by.  We had some gorgeous creations for the last challenge.  Click here to go and see the winners and also to see the Design Team creations for this fortnight's challenge of "Merry Christmas".
This fortnight we are lucky to be sponsored by The Stamping Boutique.

Here is a bit of information about The Stamping Boutique:
I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique.
My team and I are very happy to sponsor Aud Sentiments.
My store has been open since September 2009.
I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack.
I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community.
I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all.
I'm truly blessed. 
"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork.
We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best."
For my card I have used the image called "Snowfriends". Aren't they such gorgeous snowpeople. For a change I have coloured my image in with watercolours for a totally different look.  I have added some dimension to the image with some glitter glue and also some Polar White Flowersoft.  I have used two different backing papers from my stash - not sure of the make as they aren't in a packet.  I had a piece of holographic card that had got a bit dog-eared so I put it through an embossing folder.  It's amazing how it will bring card back to life.  The inside of the card matches the outside apart from the image as I like things to flow through.  The card has been finished off with some peel-offs, lots of white card candy to represent snowballs and a die-cut sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
