2015 Christmas Card #18

Happy Thursday! Two posts in a day... Today is day 6 of Bugaboo's Christmas in July event.
Everybody who joins has the possibility to  win daily prizes, and those of you who choose to participate in all the challenges this week is in the chance of winning the Grand Prize:
1st - 7 free images for 6 months and 4 month Guest DT spot
2nd - $50 gift card and 2 month Guest DT spot
3rd - $25 gift card and 1 month Guest DT spot

For day 6 we have a photo inspiration for you. I used one of Jodie's snowman images and made a typically Norwegian winter svene for him, using a die from Cottage Cutz. I love this wintery scene die and I'm going to use it a lot for my future cards. The image is as usually colored with Promakers, and I added loose glitter to the trim of his hat. No DPs used (I'm getting better at that, I'm a paper addict to be honest).No embellies this time, since I did two cards in a row with a (to me) overload of elements....

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Sparkle N Sprinkle - Anything Goes with Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking
2) Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Winter Wonderland
3) Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes

That scene makes a fabulous background . Keeping it white means that , although it is detailed, it still lets your snowman take the spotlight.
