Cuddly Buddly Challenge - December 2010

Over at the Cuddly Buddly Challenge this month the challenge is to make a card/project using one or more of the papers that are given away free.  I liked the holly papers but decided to go for the blue and white papers - not sure why as I am more of a traditional Christmas style of girl!!!  I chose to use an image I downloaded from Cuddly Buddly last year and used on some of my Christmas cards then - isn't this snowman just the cutest?  My snowman has been coloured in with Promarkers in nice blue colours.  The card has been put together with the papers from Cuddly Buddly, some scraps from my scrap box.  I have distressed the papers with my ink dusters and it's given a more subtle distress than I seem to get with cut-and-dry foam no matter how hard I try.  The card is finished off with some Cricut cut snowflakes with the addition of some Stickles, buttons, bow, ribbon and a ticket sentiment from Crafty Ann's which has been Stickled as well.
