Mini snowman


I made a couple of mini cards today - I'll probably use them for Morgan's school friends... last year I bought a little pack of cards for him to use, but he was so disappointed not to have handmade ones, I thought I'd better make the effort this year!  I'll probably make a few different ones and then repeat them.

The little snowman is from Pink Petticoat, coloured with promarkers, with glamour dust for sparkle.  Circle cut with nesties and mounted on a nellie snellen frame.  Dovecraft paper, coredinations cardstock, spotty ribbon from my stash and black card candy.  I'm keeping them simple because I bet most of the kids won't even notice what they look like!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
