The Second Sample for Karen

Good Afternoon Ladies, I do so hope you are enjoying your weekend the sun is out in Gloucestershire and its very warm, weve just got back from Abergevenny and Ross so we are feeling rather shattered, never mind I am now posting the second sample for Karen.
This one is of a cheeky snowman on his mobile phone and carrying a load of Xmas shopping, dont ask me where Karen got the idea but it certainly a very upto date snowman. Ive stamped him onto smooth white card and coloured him with my promarkers, theyve got a better red colour in their range, anyway after colouring him Ive used some glitter and spread it all over him, then cut him out with my Nestabilitie Die No.8 then drawn around the die to create the mount for him. The sentiment is another of Karens stamps and this was also stamped onto smooth white card and cut out with one of the labels trio dies, Ive mounted both the image and the sentiment onto some red card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of red card and on top of this I have used three of the new Dovecoat "Let it Snow" paper/card pack patterns, this first one is a beige paper with a glittered snowman in the left hand corner (hes hidden behind my mounted image) and the second and third layers are a red all over robin pattern and the third is a beige background with smaller glittered snowmen on, with both of these Ive used the snowflake border punch down the one edge and stuck it to the right hand side of the card, and over these two Ive placed a greeting ribbon down and around to the back of the first layer.
To finish of Ive punched some snowflakes with my Martha Stewart punches, then used some crushed glass glitter on them and layered them up down the left hand side before sticking a pearl gem in the centres of each of them.
